The American Battle Monuments Commission
Earlier this year, I attended a presentation on World War I at the monthly meeting of the California Genealogical Society and learned about The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) and the services it provides.
This week, I received from rhe ABMC the large size photo of the cemetery in France and the photo of the gravesite where my great uncle John JAMISON is interred. Included in the mailing was an informational brochure with pictures about the particular American cemetery. The brochure includes a brief history of World War I, particularly the Oise-Aisne campaign for which this particular cemetery is named as many of those who died in that campaign are interred in this cemetery. The brochure also includes a section on all the American Memorials and Overseas Military Cemeteries.
For anyone who has a family member interred in an overseas cemetery and would like to request a photo, you can find information and a request form at: www.abmc.gov. On the left side, click the "Services Available" link.
