His Excellency, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, pays repects, and lays a rose at the
grave of famed WW II leader, Gen. George S, Patton, May 25, 2019. Throughout the course of U.S.
history, service members have paid the ultimate price in defense of our Nation. Memorial Day is a time
to honor their sacrifice and remember their legacy. This Memorial Day weekend, service members from
United States European Command will participate in ceremonies at 21 American WWI and WWII military
cemeteries across Europe. This year marks the 75th anniversary of WWII. The partnerships forged 75
years ago endure today as U.S. forces in Europe remain committed to European allies and partners. (U.S.
