Last year in May I applied for an adoption grave at the American cemetery at Margraten in the Netherlands. Unfortunately all graves were taken. About two weeks ago I received the delightful news that some graves became free to be adopted and I was asked to mercy myself for a new adoption grave. This is the grave that was assigned to me:
