Many installations across the Army are marking or have marked the centennial of the construction of their posts, which occurred in the weeks and months following the U.S. Declaration of war on Germany, April 6, 1917. To mark the occasion, the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning has devoted a large exhibit to what is referred to as 'the Great War.' The Museum has been voted the best free museum in the nation by USA Today newspaper and one of the top 12 best military museums in the world by a CNN poll. For more information, visit the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center website and the WWI Centennial Commission website.
