One of the largest Veterans Day commemorations in the region is planned for the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City today (TUE). The free event will feature U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II and Kansas City Mayor Sly James along with players from the Kansas City Chiefs. The keynote address will be presented by Pulitzer Prize winning biographer A. Scott Berg at 6:30 this (TUE) evening.
2014 marks the Centennial of the start of World War I and museum president, Dr. Matthew Naylor, says there's no place more appropriate to honor the country’s veterans.
The National World War I Museum is offering free admission throughout the day and will feature a special performance from the Lyric Opera Veterans Chorus this evening at 6.
