U.S. Naval Forces Europe Band

For Remembrance Day, The Bands of HM Royal Marines and the U.S. Naval Forces Europe Band joined to commemorate the sacrifices of American, British, and Commonwealth servicemen and women, especially those commemorated at Brookwood American Cemetery, England.

https://www.facebook.com/usnavalforceseuropeband/posts/10158748513436171

••🎺✨Today, on Remembrance Sunday, we join with our partners The Bands of HM Royal Marines to commemorate the sacrifices of American, British, and Commonwealth servicemen and women. Their contributions in pursuit of shared ideals will never be forgotten, and are testament to the enduring alliance between our nations. Though a global pandemic prevents us from travelling to honor our own, fallen in distant lands, we hope they find solace in this tribute from their brothers in arms from across the sea.

Naples War Cemetery dates from just after the British 5th Army's landing at Salerno in 1943 and establishment of the 65th, 67th, and 92nd General Hospitals in the Naples area in support of subsequent attacks against German lines on the Italian mainland. 1,206 British and Commonwealth casualties from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Seychelles and the West Indies are laid to rest on this hill overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius.

Brookwood American Cemetery is the final resting place of Americans stationed in the United Kingdom during WWI, many of whom were victims of the 1918 influenza pandemic. It also houses a memorial to 568 Americans lost at sea in the waters around the British Isles, including Gunners Mate First Class Osmond Ingram, Medal of Honor recipient, and first enlisted man to have a U.S. Navy ship named after him.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission and American Battle Monuments Commission for helping realize this tribute.

In the 1930s, hundreds of WWI Gold Star Mothers and Widows visited their loved one's graves overseas to see firsthand the fulfillment of ABMC's unofficial mission that 'the grass will always be green and the headstones white,' thanks to pilgrimages sponsored by the U.S. government.
It might be difficult today to imagine the emotions families went through then when deciding to bury their loved ones where they fell, but today, it is easy to understand the lasting impact our fallen have has as sentinels of freedom, friendship, sacrifice and commitment in the countries where they lie.

Our Story

Following World War I, Congress recognized the need for federal control over the commemoration of American armed forces overseas. On March 4, 1923, President Warren Harding signed legislation that established the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) and made the new agency responsible for the construction of monuments honoring the American Expeditionary Forces. Soon after, Congress directed ABMC to construct memorial chapels in the eight permanent military cemeteries in Europe, which were at the time maintained by the War Department. In 1934, President Franklin Roosevelt issued an Executive Order that shifted the responsibility for the management and maintenance of these hallowed grounds to ABMC.

Final dispositions of the remains of service personnel who died in World War I and World War II were carried out under the provisions of Public Law 389, 66th Congress and Public Law 368, 80th Congress, respectively. These laws entitled the next of kin to select permanent interment of a family member’s remains in an American military cemetery on foreign soil designed, constructed and maintained specifically to honor in perpetuity the dead of these wars. Alternatively, the next of kin could have the remains repatriated to the United States for interment in a national or private cemetery.

The disposition of remains was carried out by the War Department's Graves Registration Service under the Quartermaster General. From time to time ABMC receives requests from relatives asking that the instructions of the next of kin at the time of interment be disregarded. Those making such requests are informed that the decision made by the next of kin at the time of interment is final. After seeing the beauty and immaculate care of ABMC cemeteries, many of these same individuals later tell the ABMC they are pleased the remains have remained in these overseas shrines.

Today, ABMC administers, operates and maintains 26 permanent American burial grounds and 30 separate memorials, monuments and markers, on foreign soil. It also maintains three memorials in the United States. Today there are more than 139,000 American war dead interred in these cemeteries, of which 30,995 are from World War I commemorative cemeteries, 92,936 from World War II commemorative cemeteries, and 750 from the Mexican-American War. Additionally, more than 15,000 American veterans and others are interred in the Mexico City National Cemetery, Corozal American Cemetery and Clark Veterans Cemetery. More than 60,000 American servicemen and women who were missing in action, lost, or buried at sea during World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War are memorialized by name on stone tablets in ABMC cemeteries and memorials.

More than five years ago I was honored to make this seat for the American WW2 Orphanage Network U.S.A in the Netherlands. This present was given to thank the Dutch "Stichting Adoptie Graven Amerikaanse Begraafplaats Margraten whose members have attended those memorialized at Margraten for more then 70 years. This seat symbolizes the local curvey roads in our region. The material refers to the 8301 marble crosses. Last week I restored some minor scratches and it looks like new again. The restoration was commissioned by the city of Eijsden-Margraten. The seat is situated at the entrance of the city-hall of Eijsden-Margaten. Yours sincirrely, Paul Koenen

Hi, we enjoyed our visit to your cemetery in Normandy on July 23rd 2020. We were however appalled by the way the (moody) lady at the restroom area showed us the door at 18:05. We were summoned to leave the cemetery at 18:00 which we respected, but we had a long trip ahead od us and my 2 young daughters needed to go to the bathroom quite urgently. Perhaps the lady at the restrooms should be asked to keep the restroom open until 18:15 for people leaving the cemetery at 18:00? Or otherwise tell people to leave by 17:45? This would seem like a normal service to us. Kind regards, Daan Dullaert
