American Battle Monuments Commission at Fold3

American Battle Monuments Commission collection at Fold3

The American Battle Monuments Commission manages the overseas military cemeteries, memorials, monuments and markers from World War I, World War II and the Korean War. This includes Normandy American Cemetery, Flanders Field American Cemetery, Guadalcanal Memorial and the Honolulu Memorial.

The American Battle Monuments collection is quite impressive, but even more interesting is how it is presented. When searching for a service member in the collection, the result is not a data table of information. Instead, you are presented with a memorial page for that person.

These memorial pages only contain the military data for that person, but any Fold3 subscriber can add stories, photos and other personal details to turn it into a true memorial. You don’t have to be a member to browse these memorial pages and other memorials at Fold3.

May brings us Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day. Now’s a great time to honor your military relatives and ancestors. Fold3’s memorial pages can be a beautiful way to do that.
