101st AIRBORNE DIVISION - 326th AIRBORNE MEDICAL COMPANY
BATTLE OF THE BULGE 1944-1945

In the field behind this monument the Division Clearing Station of the 326th
Airborne Medical Company was overrun by enemy forces. On the night
of December 19, 1944, enemy forces attacked with armored vehicles and
infantry. The hospital was sprayed by machine-gun fire for a period
of fifteen minutes and many soldiers were killed or wounded. Those who
survived this attack became prisoner of war. This site is to memorize
all the victims and to honor the 326th Airborne Medical Company and
all other medical units who served during WW2.
They had their rendezvous with destiny. May this monument be a symbol
of honor for those brave men and women who were willing to give their
lives while saving others, some came home but so many didn't.

MAY THE WORLD NEVER FORGET
