TUNIS, Tunisia — Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Brian Wirt stands in silence remembering WWII veterans at wreath-laying ceremony in the North African American Cemetery here Nov. 17, 2006.  The Veterans Day ceremony was postponed by a few days in order to be performed during the port visit of USS Whidbey Island (LSD 41), the first port call of a major U.S. Navy ship in Tunisia since 2001.  The North Africa American Cemetery is one of 24 American cemeteries on foreign soil and covers 27 acres of land between the Mediterranean and the Bay of Tunis.  Established in 1948, the cemetery holds the graves of 2,841 U.S. service members who died while serving during the WWII North Africa campaign.
