American Battle Monuments Commission’s 101st Birthday

March 4, 2024, marks the 101st birthday of the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC).

For over 100 years, ABMC has honored the service, achievements, and sacrifices of America’s Armed Forces by serving as the guardian of our nation’s overseas cemeteries and memorials. Throughout 2023, ABMC celebrated its 100th anniversary in national and regional events and showcased its timeless mission as an enduring symbol of America’s lasting gratitude to those who serve, connecting Americans to those who came before us and reminding our nation of the price of our freedom. Most significantly, the centennial commemorations further extended ABMC’s commitment to the promise made by General of the Armies John J. Pershing that, “Time will not dim the glory of their deeds.”
