Clarifying Memorials

Some people mistakenly associate the Normandy Foundation, a private organization, with the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC), sponsor of the World War II Memorial.

There is no connection between the two and plans for the World War II Memorial continue to develop and grow. ABMC is the Executive Branch’s agency, which maintains 24 permanent US military cemeteries abroad and 22 memorials in 15 countries.
