The movie “The Monuments Men” highlights an important aspect of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) policy and operations:
The duty to avoid unnecessary damage to cultural property during DoD operations and undertakings unless prevented by imperative military necessity (subject to Rule 39 of Customary International Law).
We often hear the question: “who are the monuments men and women serving in the U.S. military today?”
The answer is: some monuments men and women serve in the U.S. military; others serve in the armed forces of U.S. allies; and others serve in conflict zones in a civilian capacity (e.g., for the U.S. Department of State).
