Andrea - and Others. The 80th Division Veterans Association as well as many of the other Veterans Associations have been placing flowers at ABMC Cemeteries for over 25 years.
Your are correct about Netherlands Cemetery at Margraten having 100% adopted graves. We do not have any information for the other 2 cemeteries.

The 80th Division has a total of 2047 graves or missing at 15 European Cemeteries - 1481 WW-II, 566 WW-I. Our largest burials are 735 at Lorraine, 504 at Luxembourg and 476 at Meuse-Argonne WW-I. That is because of where the 80th was heavily involved with a total of 3038 KIA, and 488 Missing.
