Our Services

In an effort to commemorate the service, achievements, and sacrifice of the members of the U.S. armed forces buried or memorialized at our sites world-wide, we offer a number of services to the public.

  • Artifact Collections: ABMC is dedicated to ensuring intellectual access to artifact collections such as historic furnishings and decorative items, rare books, and historic flags. Due to the fragile nature of many items and the geographic scope of the agency, physical access may be limited as ABMC identifies, evaluates, and catalogs collection items into the public facing electronic database under development.  Questions about accessing collections items can be sent to our Collections & Preservation staff
  • Education Program: ABMC is committed to developing quality resources across disciplines for teachers to use in classrooms.  These materials illuminate the service, experiences and sacrifice of those honored at ABMC cemeteries and memorials.
  • Family Assistance: Receive assistance from an ABMC staff member upon your arrival at the cemetery. Staff members are available to escort family to gravesite locations, assist with photographs, and give a guided personal tour of the site. Visit our cemetery pages for specific cemetery contact information.
  • Floral Decorations: Flowers can be placed within ABMC cemeteries at gravesites. Orders for floral arrangements must be placed directly with a florist. Local and international florists are available to process orders.
  • Floral Decoration Photos: Family members can request a photo of the floral arrangement at the grave site.  There is no charge for this service.
  • General Information: Ask a question or request information about ABMC. Visit our contact page to make this request.
  • Korean War Honor Roll Certificates: Honor an individual who lost their life during the Korean War by searching the Korean War Veterans Memorial Honor Roll and printing a commemorative certificate.
  • Letter Authorizing Fee-free Passports: Request a fee-free passport letter for overseas travel to a grave or memorialization site if you are an immediate family member. Visit our contact page to make this request or call 703-584-1501 for more information.

  • Photographs: Request a photograph of a headstone or tablet of the missing. This service is provided to direct next of kin (parents, spouse, siblings and children) of those buried or memorialized at our sites.
  • Travel Information: Request cemetery and memorial information to include best in-country routes and modes of travel, and information on accommodations near sites is available to any visitor. Visit our cemetery pages for specific cemetery contact information.
