Cheers to Volunteers – National World War I Museum and Memorial

The National World War I Museum and Memorial is very grateful for the Aces volunteers. Each member of this remarkable and dedicated crew has donated more than 500 hours (in 2019 and again in 2020) of community service to the Museum and Memorial. They help support the organization’s mission by making sure guests have a memorable and wonderful experience at the iconic treasure in Downtown Kansas City.
