42. The Bitburg Military Cemetary did not contain any American
graves. The military cemetary contains graves of 2000 German soldiers from WWI and WWII. Forty seven of those graves are of men who served in the
Waffen SS. Reagan did not lay the wreath. General Ridgeway and General Steinhoff laid the wreath at the foot of the monument at the cemetary.
