The Arlington National Cemetery is American military cemetery. Thus I could easily find monuments to American troops fighting in various part of the world. Just one example: the monument to the 3rd Infantry Division of the United States Army erected in 1990.

There is a commemorative plaque put by the monument with detailed information on the unit which took part in WWi, WII (North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France) and war in Korea and as part of the NATO defence force is stationed in Germany since 1957.

The 3rd Division was organized in Camp Greene, North Carolina in November 1917 and sent to France in 1918. Ot distinguished itself in defence of the Marne River at Chateau-Thierry, 45 miles northeast of Paris. This action earned the division the proud motto, "Rock of the Marne".

Address: Administrative Building, Arlington, Virginia 22211
