The National World War One museum is here in Kansas City and it is an impressive site. Dedicated in 1921, it was definitely designed as a memorial to “the Great War.”
Unfortunately recent funding issues have forced the flame sitting atop the 217-foot tower to be extinguished, except on special holidays. The annual cost to keep the flame burning is estimated to be 45,000 dollars by officials at the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.
Do what you can, spread the word, but somehow get people to Save the Flame to keep this memorial going as it should be.
