"Weight of Sacrifice" the new World War One Memorial Project

is being designed by Chicagoan Joseph Weishaar and sculptor Sabin Howard as they work toward its formal dedication in Pershing Park, Washington D. C. on Veteran's Day 2018. The $40 million memorial will add a free-standing sculpture and bas relief sculpture to tell the story of all who contributed to the war. Further information can be found at the World War One Memorial Commission website.

Chicago's Pritzker Military Museum and Library is a founding sponsor of the memorial and will match any individual's donation as detailed at www.TheirOwnMemorial.org.
