Kansas City and Washington, D.C., battle over WWI memorial recognition
The war is long over, but the battle might just be beginning. Reuters reports that Kansas City and Washington, D.C., are currently tussling over which city should have the “official” World War I memorial. This debate is not just semantics. The official title is seen as critical by Liberty Memorial officials because the museum is in the middle of a $5 million renovation project with the centennial of World War I just two years away.
