Updated: All ABMC sites are closed
In keeping with current precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, all American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) cemeteries are closed until further notice.
The health and safety of our staff and visitors are of utmost importance. These closures are out of an abundance of caution and align with current prevention measures suggested by U.S. and local authorities. Please continue to monitor the ABMC website and our social media channels for further updates.
Update: April 22, 2020
In order to fulfill our commemorative mission, and in keeping with current precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, all Memorial Day ceremonies will be closed to the public.
As our commemoration duties are of the utmost importance, Memorial Day will be commemorated with small and private wreath laying ceremonies at each ABMC cemetery. Two ceremonies, one at a WWI and another at a WWII cemetery, will be recorded and made available on ABMC social media platforms on May 25, 2020.
The health and safety of our staff and visitors remain one of our priorities. This decision is out of an abundance of caution and aligns with current prevention measures outlined by U.S. and local authorities.
We will continue to honor the memory of our fallen, no matter what the circumstances.
