TUNIS, Tunisia – As the lonely sound of “Taps” drifted over 2,833 bleached-white headstones Monday, dozens of U.S. Army Africa Soldiers raised their hands in salute at the North Africa American Cemetery.
They were among a group of U.S. service members who traveled to the cemetery to honor the fallen, men who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the North Africa campaign in World War II.
For U.S. Army Africa Soldiers, the Memorial Day service was the culmination of a four-day journey through Tunisia’s World War II battlefields.
