The Embassy of Luxembourg was honored to be invited to the Circles of Distinction Reception on the eve of Veterans’ Day on November 10, 2021, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the National Museum of the United States Army’s opening.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg remembers and honors the sacrifices of the American people and many of its young soldiers made to free the country from foreign occupation and tyranny in the 20th century. In order to show its appreciation, it has chosen to become a Circles of Distinction donor of the Museum.
Luxembourg is the only foreign country having contributed to the funding campaign for the museum and is proud to have its name displayed on the massive granite wall in the Museum lobby, thus expressing its gratitude to those American soldiers who have fought to free Luxembourg during WWI and WWII.
The National Museum of the US Army is located on a publicly accessible area of Fort Belvoir, Virginia, and officially opened to the public on November 11, 2020. The Museum is an ongoing effort to tell the US Army’s story through the American soldiers’ eyes and honor their accomplishments, sacrifices, and commitment. It is the first comprehensive and truly national museum to capture, display, and interpret more than 245 years of Army history. It brings to life that history in times of war and peace and also offers educational experiences.
