    Last U.S. vet of WWI wants national memorial in D.C. - USATODAY.com

    Thoughts?

    Personally, I would like to see the memorial at the National Mall be the official National World War I Memorial. One state shouldn't get the right to claim the National memorial. It should be in Washington D.C., the capital.

    I agree that it should be the DC one.

    I really don't see what's wrong with the DC one. Just a Senator trying to make their state stand out I suppose.

    They should restore the original and expand it in order to show respect for those who died. I just recently watched a program about this a few months ago. I guess the old Memorial is falling apart. What a disgrace, and what dishonor.

    Course, That would never fit into the Madman Obama's budget. There are too many homeless, criminals and drug addicts in the windy city that need food and shelter that could use the funding. Hookers too! ~BH

    Actually, Obama wanted part of the stimulus to be used for fixing up the National Mall (which is where the DC WWI memorial is, kinda off to the side), but it was cut as a concession in an attempt to get Republican votes.
