The Oise-Aisne American Cemetery and Memorial in France contains the remains of 6,012 American war dead, most of whom lost their lives while fighting in this vicinity in 1918 during World War I. As with all American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) areas it is beautiful, dignified and gives great solice to those families who's Brothers, Son, Husbands never came home.

A wonderful tribute to the memory of about 6,000 Doughboys buried here. We were proud to sign the guest registry. We spoke with the American caretaker and we were appalled to learn that only about 1,000 Americans visit this cemetery annually. It's only, perhaps, 80 miles from Paris and worth a visit to honor those WWI soldiers.

Staffperson at the Memorial Nathalie will find the grave site you seek and lead you to it. She rubs sand into the lettering of the white marble stone so that it stands out. Sand is from Normandy beach and connects the two World Wars symbolically. Cemetery is maintained meticulously. Very impressive.

Oise-Aisne American Cemetery is the final resting place for 6,012 of our WWI military dead who fought in this area in 1918. The grave markers are perfectly aligned in rows from the entrance to the Memorial at the back of the cemetery, and are divided into four tree lined sections. The rose-colored sandstone memorial contains a Chapel and a map room which shows the military operations in the area at that time. Engraved on the chapel walls are the names of 241 of the missing. Oise-Aisne is a beautiful and peaceful place.

Be sure to stop at the Visitor Center to sign the register and speak with the friendly staff. They have a wealth of knowledge about the war, the cemetery and surrounding area.

As I've stated in all my reviews on WWI Cemeteries and Memorials, they are somewhat difficult to find and it can be a challenge getting to them. They are usually far off the main highways and are not well marked. Do some research on the Battle Monuments website, www.abmc.gov, before you travel to get general directions and GPS coordinates. It will save you a lot of back-tracking and frustration.

When in France, visit an American Cemetery. It's so important that we remember them.
