November 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The unprecedented conflict involved 32 countries, lasted 4 years and cost approximately 20 million military and civilian lives.

World War I would change the face of warfare, as fighting took place on land, sea and air and chemical weapons were used for the first time on a large scale. It would also help to hasten social change as more women entered the workforce and nations found their interests increasingly intertwined.

Navy Mutual honors the memory of those who fought and died in the massive war effort. We encourage everyone to learn more about this important time in world and U.S. history.
