Very poignant couple of hours. Immaculately kept. So brave and mostly so young. It really made me reflect on our today and where we might be heading in the future.

Perhaps an unusual place to take young children on holiday but important for them to understand the sacrifices others made for us. A beautiful spot, extremely well maintained. We felt honoured to visit such a place and pay our respects. Also saw a red squirrel here, a rare sighting for us from the UK, which made our day.

Gives you a sense of the massive sacrifice that WWI entailed for Americans, especially near this area, as well as other nationalities. Kept in pristeen condition.

My buddy Ken in the States has never seen (nor any of his relatives) the grave of his Great Uncle Ellis who died in France just over a month before the end of the WWI. On our my up country I detoured 90 minutes to the Meuse-Argonne American Military Cemetery, near the village of Romagne-sous-Montfaucon, where I paid my respects... More

So neat, so tidy, so genuinely sad. One might visit just to see what it was. All those crosses, each one of them a life, given so that tyranny might not prevail, and we might be free to visit and be with them, however briefly is a most humbling experience

14,000+ Americans are buried here. Our WWI Centennial trip included a visit. The WWI Christian and Jewish markers are identical to those in Arlington,VA. This is a very somber and spiritual visit.

The largest US military overseas cemetary. It was designed personally by General Pershing for fallen American troops from WW I. A serene, awe-inspiring site, too-little visited for its importance in American military history. The drive there will take one through beautiful French country that was the epicenter of some of the most vicious combat in history.

This is the largest American Military cemetery in Europe. Therefore the vastness of the place is moving in itself. The aspect and gardens are stunning. The rows and rows of graves are so precise it does remind you of soldiers in formation. A must visit when in the area.

The number of graves and their arrangement on the hill is very moving. It was surprising that there were so many American deaths in WW I (and of course many more French and Germans were killed). This is the largest American military cemetary in Europe. The cemetary is about 45 minutes from Dououmont and a GPS or old fashioned map... More

While I was stationed in Germany, I had the pleasure of attending a joint ceremony with the French. This place is so peaceful, and beautiful. We paid our respect to those who had fallen. The city of Verdun is also a very nice place to visit. Very nice people and tons of things to see.
