Memorial Day 2016

On behalf of Democrats Abroad Netherlands, DANL Chair Jeff Rupp laid a wreath at the Memorial Day ceremony at the Netherlands American Cemetery at Margraten, Limburg.

8,301 American soldiers who died in World War II are buried there, and 1,722 soldiers missing in action are honored at this vast cemetery of 65 acres.

It was a moving ceremony, where wreaths were laid by representatives of NATO member-States and many civil organizations. We can be proud of the ultimate sacrifice that so many of our compatriots made for our freedom.
