Ardennes American Cemetery and Memorial
Represented by: Jan-Willem van de Griendt
Florist: Paul Cleven, Dingelstad, Echt, Netherlands
On Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28, 2007, wreaths were placed in behalf of the 303rd Bomb Group at all nine overseas American Cemeteries where our fallen comrades rest. Helping us honor our fallen family members, crewmates and friends were several dedicated volunteers. Representatives attended each Memorial Ceremony and each was deeply honored to place a wreath or flowers in our behalf. We are most grateful to them.
". . . The day will come when no one is left who knew them, when no visitor to this cemetery can stand before a grave remembering a face and a voice. The day will never come when America forgets them. And our nation and the world will always remember what they did here, and what they gave here for the future of humanity . . ."
