Grave adoption

 


Our Clubmembers, with the help from the Dutch authorities, have adopted graves and memorials of US Soldiers.
With the adoption of these graves we are obliged to keep the memories and names of the fallen soldiers alive.
Most of the adoptees have been buried at, or are written on the Wall of Missing at the American Cemetery in Margraten in the Netherlands.

Below you will find a list of the adoptees our members honor:
