This is a beautiful memorial to the soldiers and more of WWII. There is even an American Red Cross nurse buried here who died during the bombing of a U.S. hospital in 1944. There are 37 sets of brothers here, imagine their families at home and honor these bravest of men who fought for a safe world. I was one of the lucky ones whose Dad came home but this is a place to pay respect to all who did not.

This is a beautiful cemetery in Belgum. My Father who was killed on Nov 15, 1944 in WWII is buried there. I visited the cemetery in Spring 2000. The staff was very helpful and helped me locate the grave site and place sand from Normandy on the marker so I could read it better. My son was in germany at the time and he ws with us. He has visited the site since that moment we were there. I dont believe they charge a fee for veterans families that have loved ones buried there.

On a terrible rainy and foggy day, I came here to honor my Great uncle who died in the WWII and is buried here. I never met the man but came to honor his memory and the memory of so many that made our world safer. The interior places at the memorial thoroughly explain the battles that so many died. It is immaculate and so well taken care of - a wonderful job done by the American Battle Monuments Commission and the locals who care for the area.

This is not the largest or most well known military cemitary, but still impressive. About 8.000 american soldiers have their last resting place here. The spot is in the middle of nature, surrounded by their former battlefield. Gards watch the grounds during opening hours. Silence is asked for and well deserved. A place for grace and respect. If you are not looking for someone, a visit won't take long. It is free to pay respect. Please stop by.

We visited this cemetery on a private tour of the Belgium countryside. The rows and rows of grave sites are sobering and give your pause to thank those who died in our country's service. May they rest in peace.
