The article relates the touching story of a Memorial Day ceremony at the Margraten American Cemetery in Holland. As stated, the storyteller saw an old woman who went to a grave, placed the old Army jacket around the cross and poured wine in two glasses, made a toast and sat there the whole afternoon. The storyteller reportedly found out that the soldier buried in the grave was the fiancé of the old woman who never had the chance to marry.
