Past: Luminary 2018 at Epinal American Cemetery

February 3, 2018, at 4:15pm CET

Epinal American Cemetery will host a Luminary on February 3, 2018 at 4:25 p.m. Organized by the U.S. Memory Grand Est France, the ceremony plans to feature an LED candle on every headstone and at the Walls of the Missing. The intention is for these candles to serve as a visual reminder of the thousands of Americans buried there in the cemetery, whose lives were cut short by war. This event was originally scheduled for December 2017, but due to bad weather it was cancelled.
