Memorial Day in Belgium too!

Today, the USA remembers the fallen soldiers of past and present conflicts in an annual Memorial Day. Belgium, of course, has been a battlefield twice in the 20th century and many young american men lost their lives to save ours. One casualty is one too many but to cite some numbers, let’s mention that 5328 soldiers are buried in Neuville-en-Condroz,7992 in Aubel-Hombourg cemetery and 368 in Waregem Cemetery where a ceremonies took place over the week end. Sad and terrible numbers…
Lest we forget!

Neuville-en-condroz

 

Do you have ancestors buried in one of the cemeteries or in any other US Cemetery in Belgium? We’d love to hear their stories!
