Margraten military us graveyard today.

Margraten military graveyard Holland were the dead remembered by more then 8000 (mostly dutch) people among wich some american vets and officials that were flown.
The attendance for this Memorial Day was so great that traffic jams were formed and people had to wait hours to pay their respect.

From 1944 till the end of the war some 17.000 men were burried. Many remains were brought back to their homeland. Now 8302 graves remain.
