Very nice, and I agree, this is a very very overdue honor to our nations WWI veterans. It's a pity that none of them could have seen it.

 

Not to be 'that' guy, but the rifle depicted is not a US M1917, but a British P-14 (you can see the screw for the front volley sight in the stock). Granted, they were manufactured in the US before we entered the war, so in a way it's still fitting.
