Soldiers, veterans, and family members of key American leaders from the Battle of the Bulge attended “Keystone in the Way,” an honorary dedication of several plaques at seven different memorials in Luxembourg. The plaques highlighted the role of the U.S. 28th Infantry Division who fought off the enemy during the first few days of the battle.
Maj. Gen. Andrew Schafer, Jr., Commanding General, 28th Infantry Division
A series of World War II informational charts were unveiled at seven different memorials in Luxembourg to honor the heroes that fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Keystone in the Way highlighted the role of the 28th US Infantry Division who significantly disrupted the enemy’s advances during the first days of battle.
We’re here today commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Ardenne, where the 28th division held off seven German divisions for two days on 16 December 1944 to 18 December, allowing the coalition to rush reinforcements to the area to defeat the German offensive at the Ardenne. It’s great that our partners and allies via Luxembourg have set up this entire event and that we have both soldiers from the Luxembourg army and the US army here, assisting with these dedications nearby.
