Hosted by Gary Sinese, the Time to Remember video series proved instrumental in introducing the rationale for the Memorial through its relevance to all Americans, helping generate emotional resonance and a powerful fundraising message. The award-winning presentation also served as the prologue to the American theatrical debut of Peter Jackson’s acclaimed They Shall Not Grow Old.
Oscar nominee Gary Sinese has a personal connection to the War. His grandfather, pictured here, served in the American Expeditionary Force.
Debuting on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, A Soldier’s Journey provided a “first look” into the design of the Memorial’s bas-relief centerpiece. Told in the words of notable Americans whose stories frame both the war and this ‘wall of remembrance,’ the film explores the themes of the conflict as expressed through the work of sculptor Sabin Howard.
WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED
- Produced a landmark event
- Launched a national outreach program
- Created key fundraising media
- Grown public awareness of mission
- Engaged potential investors and partners
Our work has been credited as a vital component in engaging public support, advancing the educational mission and meeting ambitious fundraising goals for a world-class 21st century urban park.
Conceived and constructed 100 years after the conflict, America’s new national World War I Memorial is an amazing triumph of inspired collaboration during a fractious time in our history. LAST BATTLE, Loma's award winning documentary on the making of the Memorial, is told through the words of a diverse coalition of visionaries who overcame all odds to deliver a stunning achievement.
