Kindergraves Ceremony             

a Symbol of Friendship between Nations

Since 1961 this celebration has been a part of the major events during the GAIWC‘s club year and has become a symbol of friendship between
nations. Besides the GAIWC the Ramstein Chiefs Group has been in charge of the 451 Kindergraves from the years between 1952 through
1971. The two organisations have joined forces in 1986 in the Kindergraves Foundation. Longtime Club Member Mrs. Bruni Puetz together
with her husband Leo maintained the burial ground at the Kaiserslautern main cemetery for years.
