America Commemorates the Sacrifices of Its Men in Uniform Only a single American veteran survives from World War I, the conflict that ended 90 years ago today, after eight million soldiers had lost their lives in four years of fighting.

Michael Neiberg is Professor of History and Co-director of the Center for the Study of War and Society at the University of Southern Mississippi
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11.
