Markers and Plaques

There are simple markers and plaques which document the location of specific American actions on every European battlefield. These locations include the limits of advance of American combat divisions, the crash site where American aircraft went down, or the exact location where an American service member was killed.

American War Memorials Overseas works to identify, document, and preserve these markers and plaques.
