You can't easily describe the scale of this place and the precision of the head stones is something to behold, it is beyond comprehension the sacrifice that so many gave their lives from across the Atlantic Ocean to preserve democracy for their allies.

A tribute to the 1000’s of Americans who gave their lives so that we all can celebrate our freedom. If you arrive near 4:00 p.m. you will hear the mournful strains of Taps as they retire the colors.

Even the most stoic can't help being choked up when visiting this sacred place. I was totally struck with emotion walking through the grave markers. Their sacrifice for France and the World must never be forgotten or taken lightly.

What can one say? A totally moving experience. The sheer scale of this has to be experienced. What these people did for us is beyond words. In fact no-one in our group said anything for an hour. Highly recommended.
