This is an easy place to find just inside France. It is an amazing World War II cemetery with over 10000 American men and women buried here including 5 Medal of Honor winners. There are very few parking spaces and if you don't have a car I'm not sure how you would get here but if you can, I know... More

Absolutely Beautiful. Makes me proud of my country and the sacrifices we once were willing to make. Spend an hour, walk the rows of crosses, contemplate life.

We visited on a cool and rainy October Sunday afternoon. We first entered the memorial chapel, which features maps and descriptions of the battles on the walls and five sculptured figures representing the eternal struggle for freedom. The grounds were immaculate, each of the more than 10,000 headstones showing evidence of the care provided by the staff of this cemetery.... More

During my recent visit to the Lorraine American Cemetery at St. Avold, France, my travel guide and I came across two French high school students who were there on a school project researching the lives of soldiers interred at the Cemetery. This aroused my interest and soon enough I was introduced to their English Teacher, who has led previous projects... More

I was following my father's footsteps through WWII, 80th "Blue Ridge" Division, Patton's 3rd Army. This is quite moving, beautiful, memorable, serene. Many of the 80th Division soldiers are buried here. It covers 113.5 acres and contains 10,489 graves, the largest number of any American World War II cemetery in Europe.

We wanted our Europe trip to be something special and decided to include a visit here. It is an incredibly well maintained place. Very reverent and thought provoking. Thousands of gravestones mark the resting places of so many brave soldiers. Well worth the visit and something we will remember for a very long time.

Beautiful gardens can be found at this large war memorial. The cemetery is Europe's biggest war memorial with just under 10500 graves. Impressive memorial building with inscriptions illustrating the historic events. Gardens are kept in an absolute immaculate condition. Plan to spend t least an hour to reflect on this important time in our history. Our thoughts go to all... More

Like all US Cemeteries we visited this one, just outside of Epinal, was no exception in its appearance and respectful way of keeping the place of rest of our heroes a place of beauty. We were happy to see young men and women from a local Army unit there the day before Memorial Day rehearsing their display of colors. Coming... More

There is a chapel at one end and an overlook on a knoll at the other end. There is also a Wall of the Missing. The American Battle Monuments Commission is responsible for the upkeep of... More
