Headstones made of Lasa marble line the grounds of Madingley American Cemetery Oct. 16, 2013, at Madingley, England. Each grave contains the body or identifiable remains of the named individual on the headstone, with the exception of 24 unknown service members. The 3,812 graves make up approximately 39 percent of the original total of Americans temporarily interred in the United Kingdom during World War II. Sixty percent were repatriated at the wishes of family and next of kin. Technology helps remember fallen, ensures memories live on
It was a damp, foggy morning in October, amidst a sea of marble headstones; the sound of bells chiming out seemed to echo the air of somberness all around at Madingley American Cemetery, near Cambridge. The whole scene was humbling.
