The Moselle River 1944 Association has announced the commemoration events which will be held in honor of the 80th anniversary of the liberation of the Department of the Moselle in northeast France. The commemoration remembers the sacrifices of US service members which occurred during the combat around Metz and Thionville during November 1944.

The commemoration event will be held on 8-13 November of 2024. This will provide the time for everyone to attend the various ceremonies and local visits that are being planned. The program for the commemoration is currently being finalized with the partner towns and villages in the Thionville area. Numerous military vehicle clubs and their re-enactors will also be participating in the ceremonies.

Please note that the Moselle River 1944 Association is extending an open invitation to ALL of the U.S. Veterans who served in Europe during World War II. Please pass this invitation to any U.S. WWII service members or their families who may have an interest in attending this commemoration which will honor their sacrificial service of 80 years ago.

An itinerary with additional details will be provided here as soon as they become available in 2024.
