Thoughts On A World War I Memorial:


We've all seen the iconic twentieth-century national war memorials on the Mall in Washington DC:  World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War. They help us reflect, learn, and honor the sacrifices. Sadly, there is no memorial to the Great War on the Mall. Plans are underway to repurpose Pershing Park into a makeshift World War I memorial. Pershing Park is a small dilapidated memorial to General John J. Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I. It is located in the middle of a busy intersection at 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. I wonder what General "Black Jack" Pershing would think of dismantling the current memorial. Not to mention the nearly 5 million American men (and women) who served in the Great War. I hope the park doesn't become a different makeshift memorial for whatever pleases the current establishment one hundred years from now. Doesn't it defeat the purpose of a memorial to repurpose it? Our doughboys deserve better. Please visit www.wwimemorial.org for more information.  Thank you.
