Come to Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) to see a new exhibit, created by a joint effort between ABMC and ANC. The official grand opening occurred March 31, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. The joint exhibit commemorates the 100th anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I. The exhibit focuses on the American experience in the war, and how ANC and ABMC were focal points for remembrance and commemorations of the Great War. The exhibit is thematic in nature, covering everything from the arrival of the United States on the battlefield, to the influence of technology on the war, from the experiences of African-Americans and women during the war.
