American cemeteries across Europe and in northern Africa will hold ceremonies during Memorial Day weekend to honor those killed during World Wars I and II and buried overseas. The American Battle Monuments Commission maintains 24 cemeteries, 21 of which are in Europe and Tunisia. Nearly 125,000 fallen are buried at the cemeteries, about three-quarters of them from World War II.
