ARDENNES AMERICAN CEMETERY AND MEMORIAL

Ardennes

American Cemetery and Memorial Ardennes is a very special cemetery to us, just like Henri-Chapelle. It is located in Neupré, Belgium and contains graves of 5329 soldiers and 462 names in the Tablets of the Missing.

We visit this cemetery at least 3 times a year: At Memorial Day, at Christmas of New Years and in the summer. It is the most quiet cemetery normally. It lays at a nice spot surrounded by trees that seem to take the sound of the surrounding towns and traffic away.

We adopted several graves here and it was the first American cemetery we adopted graves on. At the cemetery office you also can ask for an American an Belgian flag to place at the grave marker. There also is sand available to “sand” the letters in the stone for a better photo. The sand comes from the Normandy beaches.

Grave

The cemetery is open daily to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except December 25 and January 1. It is open on host country holidays. When the cemetery is open to the public, a staff member is on duty in the Visitor Building to answer questions and escort relatives to grave and memorial sites.
