On June 7, 2023, ABMC will inter the remains of an unknown WWI soldier at Oise-Aisne American Cemetery in France, one of ABMC’s eight WWI cemeteries located overseas.
More than 500,000 Americans lost their lives in World War I and World War II defending freedom and democracy far from home.
To mark a hundred years of commemoration, ABMC released a unique 56-minute documentary, "Our Promise: 100 years of the American Battle Monuments Commission."
This year, the American Battle Monuments Commission is celebrating its centennial, having been established on March 4, 1923. Throughout its history, ABMC has been proud to honor and recognize fallen U.S. service members with Memorial Day events at its cemeteries and memorials.
ABMC will honor the 79th Anniversary of D-Day landings through a commemorative ceremony at Normandy American Cemetery, France, June 6, 2023, at 11 a.m., local time.
Bronze rosettes are placed next to the names of U.S.
