Epinal American CemeterySeptember 15 in France
This WWII cemetery is in the foothills of the Vosges Mountains in Eastern France. Although 61 percent were sent back to the US, there are over 5,250 graves in this cemetery. Also commemorated are 424 missing, of which 13 have since been found, identified, and given a proper burial.
