Deadline submission photos on April 19

Published: Tuesday, March 31 2015

The deadline for the submission of photos for The Faces of Margraten tribute has been set on April 19. Photos that will be submitted afterwards cannot be included in the tribute in time and thus will not be put at display during the tribute at the cemetery from May 2-5 this year. The Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven (Foundation United Adopters American War Graves) encourages everyone who has a photo of a U.S. WWII soldier buried or memorialized in Margraten, the Netherlands to submit the photo as soon as possible.

Photos submitted after April 19 will be stored in our online Fields of Honor - Database and will used for possible future tributes. In our online database you can already find the more than 3,100 photos that have been submitted so far as well as additional information on these soldiers.

The project The Faces of Margraten is initiated by the Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven, a Dutch non-profit organization that consists of the Dutch and Belgian adopters of American war graves at American War Cemeteries in the Netherlands and Belgium. In particular, the foundation conducts research to the men and women buried there. The foundation does, however, not maintain any of the "Adopt-A-Grave" programs that exist for various overseas American cemeteries. In case of the Margraten Cemetery, this program is maintained by the Stichting Adoptie Graven Amerikaanse Begraafplaats Margraten (Foundation Adoption Graves American Cemetery Margraten).
