National World War I Memorial on the Mall?

We've all seen the iconic twentieth-century national war memorials in Washington DC:  World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War.  They help us reflect, learn, and honor the sacrifices.  Do you remember the national World War I memorial?  Of course not, because it doesn't exist.  Fortunately, steps are underway to correct that shameful absence.  Please visit www.wwimemorial.org for more information on how you can help.  Thank you.
