“At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year 2020, we will again gather at the Luxembourg American Cemetery in Hamm on the occasion of Veterans Day.  We will honor and commemorate all veterans, living and dead, who have served honorably in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.  Please join us in celebrating this event.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, visitors will not be permitted to physically attend this year’s ceremony.  However, everyone is invited to join us via a special video livestream on Facebook.  The invitation for this special event can be found on the U.S. Embassy Luxembourg website.

On Memorial Day in May, thousands participated as we did our part to honor our commitment to “never forget” those who have protected us.  I hope that you will again be a part of honoring them.

In the midst of this pandemic, this will be one moment when we can come together in spirit and remember the heroes of the past, recognize the heroes of today, and anticipate when we can meet in person in the future.
