Our Promise: 100 Years of the American Battle Monuments Commission

On March 4, ABMC will turn 100. 🕯️

The U.S. Congress created ABMC March 4, 1923, and entrusted us with the unique mission to care for our fallen service members' graves and legacy.

What does the day-to-day work look like at our sites across the globe? How does our staff ensure that General of the Armies John J. Pershing's promise that "Time will not dim the glory of their deeds" remains unbroken? How are we going to ensure that our fallen's achievements and sacrifices will continue to be remembered and honored for the next hundred years?

🚨🎥 Stay tuned as we get ready to release a special documentary March 4.

Those who have fallen overseas in defense of America represent the amazing diversity of our nation. More than 200,000 service members are honored at ABMC cemeteries, monuments, and memorials in 17 countries worldwide. Their inclusive commitment, and their collective sacrifice, embody the very essence of equality.

As the men and women of ABMC commemorate 100 years of service on the cusp of our second century, we honor their legacy and reaffirm our promise: to ensure that the true cost of protecting our freedoms will always be shared and understood.

Local French middle school Cadets from the community surrounding Epinal American Cemetery recently rendered honors to the fallen as part of their military training.

The Cadets visited this American World War II cemetery and paid tribute to the American fallen service members honored and remembered there.
This was the first of a series of visits as part of a partnership started this year with the Society of Members of the Legion of Honor. Each year, new promotions of Cadets from all French military branches will visit Epinal American Cemetery, raising awareness of local history, teaching them about the stories and sacrifice of our fallen American service members.
During the tour, the group was particularly interested in the story of Staff Sgt. Tomosu Hirahara, a Japanese American member of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team who died during the "battle of the Lost Battalion" that took place in October 1944 in the surroundings of the cemetery.
It was also a surprise to the Cadets that women were not included in combat teams at the time.

Such visits remind us of the need and value in engaging with younger generations and sharing the stories and sacrifice of our fallen service members.

Unique each time they take place, these events have become regular, and are now the opportunity to stir up curiosity among visitors and deepen bonds with our local community who contributes to the research and comes back every year. Together, we ensure our fallen are remembered. 🙏

01/22/2023

The Sicily-Rome American Cemetery commemorates American service members fallen from the campaigns in Sicily and Italy through the liberation of Rome during World War II.

They gave their lives in the liberation of Sicily (July and August, 1943); in the landings in the Salerno area (September 1943); and in the subsequent heavy fighting northward; in the landings at and occupation of the Anzio beachhead (January to May 1944); and in the air and naval operations in these regions.

Located in Nettuno, Italy, about 38 miles south of Rome, the cemetery was named after the Anzio-Nettuno Campaign, launched January 22, 1944, during which American and British forces landed ashore near Anzio and Nettuno.

In remembrance of the men and women who participated in the Allied Landings at Anzio and Nettuno during WWII, Sicily-Rome American Cemetery, Italy, will host a ceremony and twilight memorial concert.

🗓️ Tuesday Jan. 24, at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Our cemeteries are places where stories and memories are shared, and unique connections are made. ✨

This is particularly true at Netherlands American Cemetery, Margraten, where local visitors adopt a grave, research the story of the service member, and lay flowers at the grave at once a year. 💐🙏

Unique to the cemetery is the connection with the Dutch people. Since 1945, members of the local community have adopted the grave sites of our fallen. They bring flowers to the cemetery and research the life of the service member as a way to honor their sacrifice and naturally supporting our mission to remember our fallen and tell their stories.

Today, the Foundation for Adopting Graves at the American Cemetery Margraten manages this program. Local communities close to other cemeteries have also created associations that run similar programs.

Did you know about this program? Are you a grave adopter or interested in becoming one?

Time shall not dim the glory of their deeds.

In war. In peace. From the crucible of combat to commemoration of the ultimate sacrifice made by Americans on foreign shores, General of the Armies John J. Pershing was instrumental in establishing the American Battlefield Monuments Commission in 1923. One hundred years later, the men and women of ABMC continue to ensure that the memories of those who fell abroad defending our nation will never die.

As we begin our Centennial, we remember his stirring words that guide our perpetual mission: “Time shall not dim the glory of their deeds.”

CIMETIERE AMERICAIN DE SAINT – AVOLD – MOSELLE

LE TITRE – 10 489 –

Le thème – Conversation entre 3 jeunes américains enterrés au LORRAINE and AMERICAN CEMETERY, et 2 jeunes adolescents nommés CLEMENCE et JULES venant leur rendre hommage...

.Hello young people, you often come to visit us, we recognize you .
(Bonjour les jeunes, vous venez souvent ns rendre visite, nous vous reconnaissons. )

( Les jeunes étonnés de ces voix d' outre tombe, tournent la tête, à droite à gauche, derrière eux et demeurent comme pétrifiés )

Do not be afraid, we are not dead, we are sleeping ...

( N' ayez pas peur, on n' est pas mort, on dort...)

Cela fait un moment qu'on est là
1944 ou 1945 on croit,
Morts à BITCHE, à ST DIE où à SELESTAT
L' important est, qu' on soit tous là
Qu'on ne nous ai pas séparés,


Et si aucun président n'est venu
Ni français ni américain,
C'est qu'ils n' ont pas eu le temps,
Ont- ils dit,

Vous voir tous les deux,
Fait énormément de bien
Croyez le les enfants,
Lorsque Franklin, Winston et Charles nous ont
appelés
On a tout laissé tomber et on est venu pour vous aider
On vous à tous aimés comme on a aimé la France......

Les 2 jeunes – CLEMENCE et JULES...remis de leurs émotions...
C'est normal qu'on soit là les gars,
Maman est né un 6 juin, et ,
On est pas près d' oublier, que,
Grâce à vous on parle français,
On pense en français , on lit en français,

Grâce à vous, HARRY, LYLE, BRANDON,
On peut aussi parler et discuter en anglais
Avec vous, qui un jour,
Au mépris de votre vie,
Etes venus nous libérer,
Vous les 10 489, qui dorment ici
Et tous les autres,
Qui reposent en France,
Et aux 4 coins du monde

Libérer notre France, notre peuple,
Nous libérer du joug d' un sa**ud,
Et d' un pauvre mec
Qu' on appelait BENITO...

Harry, tu a laissé ta ferme du Texas,
Tes arbres fruitiers, tes champs de blés,

Lyle, tu a laissé tes gosses et ta femme,
Que jamais tu n' a revus, sans verser une larme

Brandon, tu as délaissé ton hôpital,
Tes patients qui comptaient sur toi,
Pour venir nous guérir d'une maladie
Venue de Germanie
D'un fou furieux appelé ADOLF
Et d'un autre , MUSSOLINI

Aujourd'hui encore on se demande
Si une telle chose arrivait,
Partout ailleurs dans le monde
Nous irions jusqu' à nous déranger.

Il y a aujourd'hui, tant de haine,
Tant de mépris et de racisme
Ici bas sur cette terre,
Que l'on dérive tout droit vers le fascisme

Mais jamais nous nous ferons à l'idée
Que même à l' issue d'une énorme bataille,
Que les 6 millions de morts juifs
Ne soient comme pour certains,
Qu'un simple détail..

Et si toi Harry, si toi LYLE, si toi BRANDON,
Nous avez rappelé, que sur BEDLOE'S ISLAND,
Un français nommé BARTOLDI vous a offert,
Le plus beau des cadeaux,
Celui de cette statue de la Liberté,

Cette Liberté éclairant le Monde
Nous à aussi ouvert les yeux.
Et demain, on vous promets,
Qu' au moment d' affronter les extrêmes,

De vous HARRY, LYLE et BRANDON,
Et de tous les autres,
Nous nous inspirerons,
Et ensemble, ces sa**uds ,
Qui n' aiment ni les juifs,
Les noirs, les musulmans ou les homos,
nous vaincrons
Et cela sans trembler même.....

ARMAND BEHR AVEC Clémence et Jules.

Remembering 1st Lt Leo F Baumann on what would of been his 99th birthday. 🇺🇸🙏🇬🇧
Yesterday, the remains of Staff Sergeant Raymond Carlyle Blanton returned to Richmond Virginia. It was the homecoming after 77 years of missing in action for Sergeant Blanton. I have done many years of research supporting DPAA in this case, and it resulted in the identification of 3 soldiers so far. My main focus has been on Sergeant Blanton, as I have become very close to his family over the last 12 years. To see him finally coming home in full military honors is just incredible. He will be buried on July 1st.
Welcome home hero. Welcome home Carlyle.

Remember for them, for us ... D-Day 😢
Good evening,
Sorry for my bad Englis, I an in French on Utah Beach an and found today this "plaque d'identité" (in french). At Crisbecq in my land during works in a bunker on the Atlantik Wall
I went to the Brittany American Cemetery today for Memorial Day. It was very disappointing not to see our war graves with American and French flags as on past Memorial Days. Hopefully, this tradition will restart next year after the covid restrictions are lifted.
Spending Memorial weekend honoring our fallen in American Cemeteries in France. First stop, Epinal American Cemetery and Memorial.
Im trying to get a photo of the burial site where my Uncle PFC Edwin Trujillo who died in the March of Bataan June 1942 (he was 19 years old). I have the plot number, row no. etc. He was in the 515th Coastal Artillery Regiment and is buried at the Manila American Cemetery.
