World War Two veterans and their families in Britain have dedicated a garden memorial for the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who died in Burma.
The 60-hectare Burma Star Memorial Grove honors the more than one million men who fought against Japan in Burma from December 1941 to September 1945.
The multi-cultural forces stationed in the southeast Asian theater formed the largest commonwealth army ever assembled. They came to be called the "Forgotten Army" because of a lack of recognition at home.
The garden at the National Memorial Arboretum near Richfield contains more than 100 native trees.
