After our client's cocktail reception at the New York Athletic Club on October 26th, we have chosen to give back to their organization, AOMDA (American Overseas Memorial Day Association). It's another "Event that Gives Back!"
An excerpt from their website:
"AOMDA is responsible for the annual placement of American flags on all known graves in Europe of American Servicepersons. Both the Paris Staff and the AOMDA committee in Brussels, Belgium work to accomplish the Association's mission.
In addition to the placement of American flags on graves the AOMDA coordinates & sponsors the annual Memorial Day ceremonies at American Military cemeteries in Belgium, France, Holland, Italy, Luxembourg, Tunisia and the United Kingdom with support from American Embassies, Consulates, the American Battle Monuments Commission and American Legion Posts and local groups.
These Ceremonies include the participation of American and National Military Units, American and National Government Officials as well as Local Authorities. The Ceremonies have become important annual events in the lives of many communities and their residents. The Ceremonies are international testimonials of remembrance and gratitude for the sacrifices made by Americans on behalf of Europeans in two World Wars."
