The Friends of Patton's 26th Infantry Division - Luxembourg (FPYD-Luxembourg) are based in Luxembourg, Europe. The all-volunteer group was founded on 22 December 2004 during a Night Vigil ceremony at the YD memorial "Schankegriecht" near Pratz, Luxembourg.
In 2005, the group was changed into a non-profit organization (Association sans but lucratif).
We are honoring the veterans of the 26th U.S. Infantry "Yankee" Division. We will set up a night vigil ceremony in Luxembourg every year, to remember all the veterans, who served, were wounded or died during the Battle of the Bulge.
We will do our best to support the Stateside Yankee Division Veterans Association, act to honor the veterans and keep the memory alive.
The 2016 Night Vigil will be held on December 17th at Grevels, municipality of Wahl in northern Luxembourg.
More will become available at our facebook-page as things develop...
