Ten more cemeteries in France have been closed, as well as graveyards in Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines. They will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown.
They are maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission, the agency charged with caring for the graves of nearly 125,000 servicemen and women buried in 24 cemeteries on foreign soil.
Normal operations will resume "when a new funding measure is passed by the US Congress and signed by the president of the United States," the ABMC said on its website.
