Maj. Gen. Jerry Grizzle, president and superintendent of the New Mexico Military Institute, has been named to a state commission to plan ways to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

The commission is to be chaired by Gov. Susana Martinez and will be part of a national effort. The New Mexico World War I Centennial Commission is intended to host events throughout the state to educate people about the state’s involvement in the war, which began in 1914 and ended in November 1918.

Other members of the commission include officials with the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services, the New Mexico National Guard, the state Department of Cultural Affairs, Department of Tourism and the New Mexico History Museum and the Palace of Governors.
