Luxembourg American Cemetery is managed by American Battle Monuments Commission, and is located near the town of Hamm, three miles east of Luxembourg City center.
Luxembourg American Cemetery measures 50.5 acres in extent is situated on a site that had been liberated by the U.S. 5th Armored Division on 10 September 1944. A temporary military burial ground had been established here on 29 December 1944. At the time, Allied Forces were engaged in stemming the enemy's Ardennes' offensive known as, "The Battle of the Bulge".
The site was subsequently selected to be the site of a permanent cemetery. After the war, the American Graves Registration Service moved the temporary burials into the permanent cemetery. Reinterment of all the burials was completed on 16 December 1949. These burials represent 39% of all the burials in the region. Many other burials were reinterred in the United States at the direction of surviving family members.
Most of the people interred here at Luxembourg American Cemetery lost their lives in "The Battle of the Bulge" offensive, as well in the fighting eastward towards the Rhine and beyond during the winter of 1944 and the spring of 1945.
Memorialized on stone columns are the names of 371 soldiers whose remains were never found.
Also interred here is General George S. Patton.
