We attended the Memorial Day ceremony at the cemetery. It was really special and meaningful. We appreciated the American Military Service Members who participated in the event, the French veterans who marched and the local representatives who laid the many wreaths. I have read recently...More

Although I have no personal family connections to the fallen, as a former army officer and military history buff, this was a worthwhile experience. The American Battle Monuments Commission does an awesome job of maintaining the cemeteries and monuments in Europe which are far and...More

When in the area, it is worth a small drive to visit this American cemetery to honor and quietly pay respects to our fallen who are permanently at rest in France having fought for us all

We decided to visit this cemetery on our way back from Verdun to Calais. Having visited Omaha Beach cemetery, I thought it would be pretty similar in size but it is significantly larger. Beautifully laid out and with wonderful memorial. Certainly worth a visit.

There are about 15,000 American soldiers buried here. It is a beautifully landscaped cemetery, but the focus is on the seemingly endless rows of crosses, each one marking the grave of a young man who died too soon and very far from his family. Most...More
