This cemetery will put you in awe. It is cared for like the worlds most famous golf courses. This is a true monument for those that gave all for their country.

Very moving to see 10,000+ grave sites. Unbelievable sacrifice by these brave soldiers fighting for freedom in Europe. Peaceful setting--glad we made the trip from our home in Germany. Seeing the French and American Flags on each grave was amazing.
