DENVER, CO– More than 218,000 American service members are buried or memorialized (remains missing) at 26 American military cemeteries and 32 monuments away from the homeland. We are building a network of active-duty military, veterans, their families, and those who appreciate their service to tell the stories of those who died in defense of freedom.

We are the American Battle Monuments Foundation, abmf.org, the official non-profit partner of the American Battle Monuments Commission (abmc.gov) ABMC is the US federal agency charged with the maintenance and management of these hallowed sites.
