This was another American cemetery which was all you would expect. Done so very well and a perfect tribute to the men who rest there. We visited it as part of a battlefield tour and could have spent 10 x the time we had there.

We visited to pay our respects at the cemetery. Two members of our community back in New York City are buried here. The cemetery is maintained beautifully and we were blessed with a personal escort.

Not my first visit and not my last. It never fails to amaze me how beautiful and tranquil these cemeteries are. I could spend hours looking round and paying my respects to those that lie within the grounds.
