PROJECT PROFILE: Pershing Square, Ocean Springs, MS

​Richard Eckert from American Legion post 42 in Ocean Springs, MS led the charge on a memorial Restoration Project that provides us all with wonderful example of what a 100 Cities / 100 Memorials challenge grant project can look like. They completed their project earlier this year, and qualifies under the program.

Because they have already submitted their application, we are able to profile it on the National site, which is a benefit to you, us and them.

Watch it here or in the resources section of the site: http://www.worldwar1centennial.org/index.php/resources.html#project-profiles

Check out this project profile and let us know what you think.
