American Battle Monument Commission’s 100th Birthday

March 4, 2023 marks the 100th birthday of the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC).

For 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 will celebrate its 100th anniversary in national and regional events and showcase 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, this year of commemoration will further extend 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.”
