If you have any chance to visit this site, take it. We went to find the grave of a relative and found him. What was so unbelievable was the reception we had from the staff. Not only did they take the time to help us locate the grave, they also performed a ceremony for us which included rubbing sand from... More

This cemetery is austere in its beauty. White marble crosses mark each grave set out in 4 sectors, A, B, C, and D. The site is perfectly maintained with trees . The huge monument has a large American eagle with three figures symbolizing Justice, Liberty, and Truth and thirteen stars representing the United States. Inside the monument room, there is... More

Driving through Belgium I found an indication to the cemetery and decided to stop. We were very impressed by the site and imagining these guys living home, crossing the ocean and be killed in order to help the world to get rid of the nazis. We were there around noon, when the bells started to play America the Beautiful. It... More

This cemetery is obviusly a sobering visit any time but there are typically larger ceremonies that take place on dates like Memorial Day which was when we visited. There are still American military units in Belgium and Germany that do ceremonies at these cemeteries. The monument commission does a wonderful job of maintaining them but I'm also always impressed by... More

Whenever in Europe we try and stop at WW1 and WW2 sites whenever possible. As always with American sites this one is beautifully maintained and very moving. Part of the memorial was being renovated during our visit, but it remained an impressive site. We were lucky enough to be the only visitors late in the day, and the Officer in... More

A very quiet and respectful and beautifull place. I came here after visiting the Normandy American Cemetery in Coleville- Sur-Mere and they both have the white cross aligned. The difference between both is that the Normandy Cemetery is much bigger and theres is a very scenic view of Omaha Beach. The both place are very moving place.

Just got back and was so overwhelmed as well as pleased to see the Ardennes and Henri-Chapeau cemetaries. What care? Wow! Beautiful, well planned, each grave/person is adopted by a Belgian or a Belgian family, and so nicely decorated on our American Memorial Day. It is obvious to see the Belgians at the ceremonies that U.S. military has not been... More

My wife and I visited Europe for the first time in early April 2010, and I couldn’t see going to Europe without visiting a US Military Cemetery-Memorial to honor our brave, fallen soldiers. The staff were absolutely generous and gracious hosts. Mr. Benjamin gave us a tour of the grounds for about 2 hours guiding us through the different stories... More

American military sites are difficult to find in Belgium as the signage is very poor and difficult to spot if there is a sign pointing the way. Armed with our trusty WWII European Sites Guidebook, we were able to find this cemetery by carefully following the directions. Upon pulling into the parking lot, we noticed that we were the only...
