WWI Centennial Commemoration
In 1917 World War I plunged the United States into the most horrific war we had ever fought overseas. A century later we still talk of the heroism, sacrifice and victories of that “war to end all wars.”
Join the National Museum of the Marine Corps in commemorating the centennial of WWI throughout 2017 and 2018. We will have special events, lectures and demonstrations throughout year that will allow visitors to experience the war that gained the Marines notoriety around the world.
