Pass the Torch

Freedom is a value. Help us reach out to future generations.

The AOMDA Foundation Belgium works hard to actively engage future generations in remembering the price of our freedom.  In Belgium school children participate in Memorial Day ceremonies, and we visit schools with active duty members of the American armed forces to provide an opportunity for young people to learn about safeguarding liberty.  Wherever you are in the world, the resources below can help you pass the torch of remembrance to the next generation.
