War graves in Cebu

Recommended Posts

Are there any allied cemeteries in Cebu?  I'd like to pay my respects and place a poppy tomorrow.

I'll pay a visit tomorrow.  The site says it contains 32 confirmed American graves but Wikipedia says 410 Americans died taking the city.  I wonder where the rest of them are.

There is even a medal of honor winner buried in Cebu. I can't remember which cemetery he is in, but there are LinC Forums members who do know. The VFW post here is named after him.

Not all were buried where they fell.

The Americans don't have an organisation like the CWGC?

Thank you lamoe.  I guess the answer to my CWGC question is no there isn't, I think its really sad that the American goverment doesnt have the will to take care of their war dead wherever they might have fallen.  RIP guys.
