    Alas, the link takes users back to the poem. Were you referring to the article in the Washington Post about the WWI memorial in Kansas City, which i’ve been to twice? Or is there another article?

    As an aside, i wouldn’t be here were it not for WWI–my grandfather was a US Marine officer and provost marshal for the Marine brigade in Brest–my grandmother, whose fiance had been killed in 1915, was the translator for her father, a French army officer who commanded the French garrison–at any rate, they married in 1918 and my aunt was born there before the Marines came back. General Lejeune was at their wedding.

    Finally got to read the article–fascinating. Plastic surgery is one of many innovations directly the result of WWI.

      Having seen the pictures, that era of plastic surgery was horrific. I can’t imagine having to choose „that“ option over the scars/injuries from the battlefield. We have advanced so much over 100 years, and the better that we can rebuild people following devastating injuries, the better for health and recovery.
