Operational Status Page

To check the current operational status of ABMC commemorative sites, please reference the chart below. 

Next-of-kin and family members of our fallen, as well as WWII Veterans, are strongly encouraged to contact the cemetery staff at all ABMC locations prior to making travel arrangements or plans to visit any site.

Depending on the site, visitors will have controlled access to portions of the cemetery with a designated route, allowing for social distancing. Ceremonies and other gatherings within the grounds of the cemeteries are not permitted. Additional information will be provided by cemetery staff during your initial phone/email contact and upon arrival to an open site.

The safety and security of ABMC employees and visitors remains a top priority. Social distancing, prescribed visitation paths, and blocked areas will remain applicable at all ABMC sites until further notice. Wearing a mask when visiting any ABMC site is strongly recommended, as well as forgoing a visit while feeling unwell.

Memorial Day 2021 at ABMC cemeteries

The American Battle Monuments Commission will honor the fallen this Memorial Day, but due to host-nation COVID-19 guidance and out of an abundance of caution, all ceremonies will be closed to the public. In those countries where our cemetery grounds are open to the public, the gates will close at a designated time so that ABMC staff and host-nation guests can render the proper honors while respecting social distancing and public gathering restrictions. The ABMC cemeteries that are currently open will reopen after ceremonies are complete.

Please check our operating status on www.abmc.gov/operational-status for updates prior to visiting any ABMC cemetery. We ask that any visiting next-of-kin and/or Veterans please contact the cemetery directly prior to any desired or planned visit around Memorial Day.

To ensure our global audience can still remember with us, the ABMC will broadcast two virtual ceremonies on Memorial Day on Facebook and YouTube @usabmc.

 

The World War I Memorial Day ceremony will start at 10 a.m. EST, 4 p.m. CET on May 31, 2021.

The World War II Memorial Day ceremony, will start an hour later at 11 a.m. EST, 5 p.m. CET on May 31, 2021.
