I am very pleased to announce that the project has been endorsed by:
The project will advance the aims of the Commission through:
Education: Informing national and local audiences about the participation of the United States and Americans in the First World War outwith the AEF.
Commemoration: Achieving recognition of the service and sacrifice of Americans, who may otherwise be forgotten because they were not serving with the AEF.
Memorials: Identifying and cataloguing memorials to American casualties, including CWGC and private grave markers, that may otherwise not be recognized.
