American Cemetery and Memorial

Epinal American Cemetery in France. It is one of fourteen permanent World War II American cemeteries erected on foreign soil by the American Battle Monuments Commission. The site was liberated on 21 September 1945 by the US 45th Infantry Division and a temporary military burial ground was established there fifteen day later. The 5,255 American military Dead buried in the Epinal, lost their lives in the fighting across central France.

Medallion and Flag 

John Dudley Barksdale who place the medallion and flag at Eddie's grave site for Bill Overstreet. 

Also through the efforts of Bill Overstreet and Jeffrey Clemens, a Proclamation was declared at the New Jersey State Capitol recognizing the accomplishments of Eddie Simpson and an American Flag was flown over the Capitol in his honor. We will show the flag and the Proclamation at a future time. Thanks for all those who have helped getting Eddie the recognition he deserves.
