The US World War 1 Centennial Commission has launched a new activity called The Memorial Hunter’s Club to encourage persons to seek out and report memorials in their communities. There are thousands of memorials to those who served and died in the Great War throughout our country. The goal is to have a national register which lists them all. Click here for more details.
