    This moving documentary honors the thousands of Americans who gave their lives during World War II and who lie in eternal rest in military cemeteries around the globe. Our HD cameras will visit these peaceful sepulchers, examine their histories, and introduce the viewers to those who maintain them along with several men, women and children who have unselfishly adopted and who care for the graves of America’s fallen heroes. Through archival photographs and film footage, personal accounts of local residents, interviews with family members of those buried overseas, grave adopters and cemetery staff members, we will help the viewer to better understand the human aspect of the war and its consequences. From Normandy American Cemetery near Omaha Beach in France to the peaceful country-side location of Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery in Belgium; from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the North Africa American Cemetery of Tunisia to the Philippine Islands where we find the Manila American Cemetery, Torus will record not only the beauty and serenity of these hallowed places, but also the pride and honor with which each is preserved and protected. These sacred fields of honor are truly a lasting tribute and final resting place for those who made the supreme sacrifice for mankind. 4:00 PREVIEW Directed/Photographed by K.

        With thousands of cemeteries and memorials around the world, the Commission deals with a huge variety of horticultural challenges. On-the-job training is a vital part in ensuring our gardeners have all the skills they need to tackle tasks both big and small. At a recent training session at the Commission's Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey, England, staff discussed gardening topics with horticultural experts and learned about important health and safety legislation from some of the Commission's own managers.
