Marines Remember Their Fallen at Belleau Wood on Memorial Day

Marines from the 6th Marine Regiment stand in formation during the Memorial Day near the Marine memorial in Belleau Wood, May 25. To celebrate Memorial Day, and to mark the 96th anniversary of the historic Battle of Belleau Wood, U.S. Marines with their French counterparts gathered at Aisne-Marne American Cemetery to commemorate their fallen heroes. The event was held in the memorial cemetery that lies outside of the historic grounds of Belleau Wood and featured the laying of wreathes, a firing of volleys, the playing of TAPS, raising of the American and French national colors, and a concert by the French military band. The mayor of the village of Belleu along with other military officers and officials representing the U.S. and France were present. Participating units from the U.S. Marines included 6th Marine Regiment, Marine Security Guard Detachment, the Wounded Warrior Regiment and Marine Forces Europe and Africa. French units that participated in the ceremony included the 3rd Marine Artillery Regiment and the Musique Principale des Troupes de Marines.
