A new memorial to Honor those who served in World War One now sits in Boise's Veterans Memorial Park.

The memorial, thanks in part to the "Daughters of the American Revolution," is the only WWI memorial in Idaho. It was unveiled this morning, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the WWI Armistice.

The memorial took about a year and a half to build from start to finish, but it will help honor veterans in the valley for years to come.

The dedication featured speakers from the historical society in Idaho and musical performances.
