Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I hope each of you is staying safe in these challenging times. We are adapting to circumstances and progress continues to be made on the National World War I Memorial.
We are as determined as our Doughboys were a century ago.

All our staff members are working from home, and meetings with colleagues and prospective supporters are being conducted virtually.

As we continue to navigate our way ahead, I am pleased to report that the next set of armatures for A Soldier’s Journey arrived this week at Sabin Howard’s studio in Englewood, NJ.

Sabin and Traci have rented a house in Englewood to keep the sculpting team close to the studio and ensure their safety.  They are continuing their work on the Memorial while closely following CDC guidelines.

You can also follow construction progress at the Memorial in real time by visiting our website and scrolling down to the camera at the construction site.

We will keep you all closely informed as we forge ahead to raise the remaining funds that will make this Memorial a reality. As we move forward, please know how grateful we are for the advice and support you have each contributed to bring us to this point.

Stay safe and take care of each other.
