Join us online to
Honor them
Americans and Belgians have gathered on Memorial Day since 1923 to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for liberty during World Wars I and II. Covid-19 won't stop us now. This year we invite you to a unique .commemoration, a live online ceremony experience designed for everyone: MemorialDayOnline.com
Every service member buried in Belgium has a story. While visiting a cemetery, or online wherever you are, use these search fields to learn the story of an individual life lost in the pursuit of freedom. Read personal tributes, become a Sentinel of Memory, discover museums, monuments and more.
