As explained during the Congress on April 2, 2017, the association Les Fleurs de la Mémoire has become aware of a project aiming to enabling an American veteran to come back in Normandy for D-Day ceremonies.
If you would like to be a part of this beautiful project, we are inviting you to make a donation to the association (send to Les Fleurs de la Mémoire 50810 VIDOUVILLE) so as for this veteran to see the places where he fought for our Freedom again.
A new message has been added about cards attributed for each grave, moving house and successions at the bottom of the "membership" page.
Two large maintenance projects will begin at Brittany American Cemetery at the end of this month. A new irrigation system will be installed throughout the fine lawn areas, and a new drainage system will be installed in the plot areas. Plots will be closed at various times as the work progresses. Pedestrian pathways will be shifted, and machinery and additional noise will also be an outcome of the projects. The work is expected to be complete by May 2017.
The cemetery will remain open under normal operating hours. If you are a family member visiting, and need access to a restricted plot area, please go the visitor center, where a staff member will escort you to the gravesite. We thank you for your understanding as we work to ensure ABMC cemeteries adhere to the highest standards of excellent.
