World War I memorials across the US are falling into disrepair, reports the Washington Times.
The newspaper takes the example of the Waikiki Natatorium, built in 1927 as a tribute to 10,000 Hawaiians who served during the war.

Meanwhile, in Greensboro, North Carolina, a sports stadium built as a World War I memorial is also crumbing.
