The Dignitaries Leave at the end of the Service and Flypasts
Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial is a cemetery and chapel between the villages of Coton and Madingley in Cambridgeshire. It was opened in 1956, and commemorates the American servicemen who died in World War II. It is run by the American Battle Monuments Commission.
The difference in numbers is accounted for by the fact that one headstone is over a grave with two servicemen, who could not be separately identified, and another is over a grave with three servicemen for the same reason.
Uncommon memorial People walk through the Boston Common covered with American flags, in Boston on May 23. Relatives and volunteers planted 33,000 flags in the historic park in advance of the Memorial Day weekend, in tribute to Massachusetts soldiers killed in conflicts as far back as the Civil War.
