“Profoundly understated memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

The view is spectacular and the grounds are impeccable. The tranquil beauty of this military cemetery creates a stark contrast with the filthy, freezing, bloody battlefields where these soldiers died. Hard to hold back a tear.

“Inspirational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2010

My wife and I brought her parents to this American Military Cemetery so my Father-In-Law could see the grave of his Uncle who was killed during the Battle of the Bulge. Truly was an inspirational experience. To walk among the graves of those who gave everything to fight for freedom is incredible. The highlight of our European trip for my Father in Law was to see his Uncle's grave. We are the first family members to ever see the grave. Thanks to the internet and the American Battle Monuments Commission for helping me find the long lost grave.

“Henri Chapell American Cemetery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2010

Henri Chapell American Cemetery in Belgium is part of the American Battle Monuments Commission. It is a beautiful and inspiring WWII cemetery which overlooks the battlefield. While American Military sites seem not to be well marked in Belgium and are somewhat difficult to find, the American Battle Monuments Commission online has all the information and directions needed to find these cemeteries and monuments to our fallen of both WWI and WWII. When visiting Belgium and France, it is well worth going a little out of your way to visit one or several of these cemeteries. Take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices of these men and women as you gaze out upon the thousands of white marble markers where they rest.
