My name is Karel and I live in The Netherlands. I have adopted some graves of soldiers who fought in WW2 and burried in ABMC locations in The Netherlands, Belgium and France.

I visit the graves at least once a year to lay flowers and pay my respect.

 

I also research the soldiers and of some I have their medals.

Welcome to the forum.

It's a very noble endeavor to have adopted the graves of foreign soldiers. And it is greatly appreciated and humbling for us in the US to see that America still has friends around the world in these modern times.
