National World War I Museum to Mark 100th Anniversary of Armistice

World War One...the Great War...began in 1914. It ended in 1918 with an armistice that ended fighting between the Allies and Germany. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in human history, with about 37 million civilian and military casualties. The nation's only dedicated World War I memorial is in Kansas City -- the National World War I Museum and Memorial. The museum is planning a major commemoration of the signing of the Armistice...on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, one hundred years ago...that will take place on the memorial grounds on Sunday. KPR's Laura Lorson talked with the museum's president, Matt Naylor, about the terrible cost of World War One, and how it changed America.


That's Dr. Matt Naylor, president and CEO of the National World War One Museum and Memorial in Kansas City. The centennial commemoration of the armistice that ended World War One will take place Sunday, Veterans Day, at the memorial.
