As the War Graves in Europe, the American Cemetery is right up there. Beautifully kept and a very moving experience.

We visited here during a long weekend visit to Cambridge. Even though I am an American, I have no personal connection with this place.

A nice place to sit and reflect, its quiet and atmospheric. Beautiful setting and certainly makes one think of how many young people died for our future, a future we should cherish
