A Presentation by Aimee Fogg and Robbe Meers

Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery located in Homburg, Belgium, is the final resting place for 7,992 American WWII servicemembers, including thirty-eight men from NH. In 2010, Aimee Gagnon Fogg began the journey of researching her great-uncle PFC Paul M. Lavoie and discovering the stories of the men of Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery.

PFC Paul M. Lavoie of Nashua, NH, was just 21 years old when he gave his life at the Schwammenauel Dam in Germany. PFC Lavoie and thousands of his brothers in arms remained interred at Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery in Belgium at the request of their families. Many of these graves have been “adopted” by Belgian and Dutch citizens, like Robbe Meers, 17, of Zutendaal, Belgium, who honor the ultimate sacrifices made decades ago.

Come join Aimee and Robbe as they introduce the men of Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and discuss the importance of remembrance.

Aimee Gagnon Fogg is the founder and director of They Speak: Voices of Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery, which is dedicated to collecting the personal stories and photos of the nearly 8,400 men of HCAC. She is also the author of several publications.

Robbe Meers of Zutendaal, Belgium, is the adopter of many soldiers at both Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and Netherlands American Cemetery. His interest in both World Wars began at age 5 and later evolved into learning about the men, “who fought and died for our freedom.” He will be pursuing postsecondary education in the fall.

Admission is $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members. Please use the form below or call 603-569-1212 for reservations as seated is limited. Museum doors open at 6pm program begins at 7pm.
