American Overseas Memorial Day in Belgium

UNC-TV'S Military and Veterans Affairs team is working with Belgium’s government and citizens who honor Americans who fought and died during World Wars I and II. Centered annually around our Memorial Day weekend, the Belgian ceremony started 100 years ago after the end of The Great War.

UNC-TV's team members in Belgium include Jeff Smith, director of Military and Veterans Affairs for UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina, along with Director of Photography Dan Powers and Producer David Hurst. During their nearly two weeks in Belgium, they will share the major celebrations at the three official American Cemeteries, as well as numerous private grave sites and memorials to the Americans.

UNC-TV is grateful to our partners and hosts in Belgium: the American Overseas Memorial Day Association Foundation (AOMDA), the American Battle Monuments Foundation (ABMF), Visit Flanders (Toerisme Vlaanderen) and The Wallonia Tourism Bureau (Wallonie Belgique Tourisme).
