In order to do our part to protect public health and safety in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Memorial Day ceremony at the Kemmel American Monument is cancelled. However, the AOMDA Foundation is determined to fulfill our mission of commemorating America’s war dead in Belgium despite the pandemic. There will be a digital commemoration of all of the soldiers and airmen who are buried in Belgium, with more details to be announced in the weeks leading up to Memorial Day.
This ceremony commemorates the American soldiers of the 27th and 30th Divisions who died liberating the area surrounding Kemmel during the First World War.
