Welcome to the Military memorials and cemeteries task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.

Scope[edit]

This task force covers all military memorials, monuments, and cemeteries, regardless of the country or conflict to which they relate.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Memorials-task-force=yes to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Military memorials and cemeteries task force articles.
