"Time will not dim the glory of their deeds"
-General of the Army John J pershing
As we approach Memorial Day, we should remember that our war dead are buried in cemeteries around the globe. This is a listing of those administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission, and each includes a link to a video and more pictures.
The ABMC commemorative mission is reflected in 24 overseas military cemeteries that serve as resting places for almost 125,000 American war dead; on Tablets of the Missing that memorialize more than 94,000 U.S. servicemen and women; and through 25 memorials, monuments and markers.
