U.S. turned the tide for WW1 victory

forever stamp

The U.S. Postal Service recently issued WW1 Forever stamps commemorating the 100th anniversary of four million American families sending sons and daughters to serve in the Great War. Yes, women; WW1 was the first time women joined the U.S. armed forces.

The U.S. remained neutral until 1917 and engaged in combat in 1918, turning the tide to end the four-year global conflict.

The National WW1 Memorial is being built in Washington, DC to commemorate the centennial. WW1 descendants can register on Roll of Honor. A U.S. Mint 2018 Commemorative Silver Dollar is also available.
