    Servicemen Stories Database: Every one of the more than 14,000 servicemen buried in Belgium now has a personal tribute page on www.aomda.org to honor his memory. Enter a name in the search fields or view by cemetery to read and share information and tributes about each soldier, marine and airman whose final resting place is Belgium. Registered users may upload photos, articles, videos, thoughts, reflections and more. What makes the database unique is that it scales for use by smartphones and mobile devices, allowing visitors to a cemetery to engage with these serviceman’s stories on location. Please help us tell their stories by researching and sharing what you can about their lives and history.

    Serve as Sentinel of Memory: At the request of the ABMC, AOMDA Belgium agreed to assume leadership of two of the former grave adoption programs. The timing was perfect, and the website provided a way to merge the activity with our new Sentinels of Memory initiative. Anyone, anywhere in the world, can be a Sentinel of Memory for any serviceman with whom they feel a connection. Simply register and add your name on his tribute page. Those who live closer to a cemetery may choose to serve as a “Primary” Sentinel, a commitment to honor his grave with floral tributes throughout the year and to research and help to share his story.

    Please consider a donation this Memorial Day: The AOMDA Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit entity, has been created to help AOMDA Belgium achieve its mission of remembrance. We remain a private, 100% volunteer organization. All funds received go directly to our mission. Donating is now easier than ever. Simply visit our site and make a donation today using Paypal. Or find instructions on how to send a check. Donations in USD are tax deductible. We greatly appreciate your support!

    Congress is slated after the summer recess to take up the issue of comprehensive tax reform. The upcoming tax-reform process is focusing on residence-based taxation changes for US foreign businesses, and American Citizens Abroad (ACA) advocates working to persuade Congress that the tax law should include residence-based taxation for individuals as well. Currently, Americans living overseas are taxed in the US based on citizenship.
     
    “Residency-based taxation for individuals is a relatively straightforward exercise and does not risk ‘muddying the water’ for changes regarding corporate international taxation. There are no obvious roadblocks to undertaking this step,” said ACAGF Chairman Charles Bruce.
     
    ACA’s ongoing advocacy efforts have raised awareness of the problems facing Americans living overseas and have provided proposals for treatment to alleviate tax compliancy problems. Now ACAGF is raising funds to commission a professional "scoring" or revenue estimates required to persuade Congress that tax reforms that would benefit individual American expatriate taxpayers are feasible and cost-neutral.
     
    “The tax-writing and other committees and Member offices that ACA has met with are all familiar with ACA’s approach to residency-based taxation of Americans overseas, and meetings in these offices lead us to believe that legislation making this change is eminently doable,” said ACA Executive Director Marylouise Serrato. “The House Republican ‘Blueprint’ for tax reform states that the Ways and Means Committee intends to address the treatment of individuals living and working abroad, opening the door for this important change.”
     
    This urgent "specified-need" fundraising campaign is being conducted by American Citizens Abroad, Inc.’s sister organization, American Citizens Abroad Global Foundation, which is a section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt publicly-supported charity (
    http://acaglobalfoundation.org/donate). Donations to ACAGF are tax-deductible. Details about the work are found here on ACA’s website at: https://www.americansabroad.org/nows-the-time-for-rbt-donate-today/
