World War I has received increased attention since its centennial commemoration in 2014, and that attention has led to a push for the Great War to finally have a proper memorial in Washington D.C.

The WWI Centennial Commission is accepting design submissions until July 21, and they hope the project will be completed by the centennial of the WWI’s end on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2018.

The memorial is slated for construction in the oft-overlooked Pershing Park at 15th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, which makes it more than unfortunate that the Commission has already decided to shove Gen. John Pershing aside in their plans.

    God Bless Black Jack Pershing, whom the Pershing Missile was named after! I served as a 15E Pershing Missile Crewman, from 1969-1972. Black Jack knew how to deal with the rabid barbarians of Islam too! God Bless our Military, our Vets, and pray that America once again becomes an “American President” in 2016, and no more Foreign Homosexual Muslim Pigs, like we now have with Obama the Coward! God Bless America and May God Damn the Rabid Pigs of Islam and the Tyrants of our Nation!

    The planned memorial is to honor ALL those who served in WW1. The article states that Pershing’s statue will be part of the memorial, just not the centerpiece. But, once again, the Breitbart headline only tries to whip up anti-government, foaming-at-the-mouth ranters.

      Not the only group that does this. if they studied history, they might have stated he is not the main attraction because of what he did to the Filipino Muslims to stop the uprising against Christians.

        Leave one living and poor pig blood on the rest to tell all the others. Game over. It would work again. But why use a tactic that works? Get thousands killed in the name of political correctness.

          Are you talking about Bush’s war in Iraq? What’s your point?

            Good Lord man. Read some history already. Look up Pershing career. Read it. Be less ignorant of the conversation. You libs are all the same. Comment on something you have no clue on. Instead of doing your own research. Fricking sheep.
