'A day to remember' -- Luxembourg, US reflect on Memorial Day significance

Helen Patton, granddaughter of U.S. Army Gen. George S. Patton, left, places a rose at the gravesite of U.S. Army Air Corps 1st Lt. Hanford "Rusty" J. Rustand, a B-17 bomber pilot killed in World War II, as Marilynn Rustand Lieurance, Rustand’s daughter, watches after a Memorial Day ceremony at the Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial in Luxembourg, May 28, 2016. Rustand died when his B-17 came under enemy fire during a mission near Merseburg, Germany, and crashed on Nov. 2, 1944, nearly half a year before Lieurance was born. Both Rustand and Patton’s grandfather are among the 5,076 American service members buried at the cemetery. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Joe W. McFadden/Released)
