Visited on Remembrance Sunday and although no procession, felt honouored to be in the surrounds of such heros. Amazingly kept and triggers a mass of emotions. Thank you.

Magnificent cemetery to the Memory of those who should not be forgotten
Oct 2018 • Couples
Thank you to the Marine Civil Servant in charge of the cemetery for giving us a personal explanation of the Memorial and the battles that led to the deaths of many of the men with crosses and graves there today. The cemetery is kept up so well, and it was our honor to walk among the graves, walk to the magnificent Memorial at the end of the path, go in the 2 chapels, and pray. Our young men gave so many of their lives on French soil to the war, and it is a remarkable place. Thank you for all for your service to our country and others.

Stopped here for 45 minute visit en route Reims to Paris. Beautiful resting place for American Troops who died in area battles in WWI. Belleau Wood is directly behind the big memorial and is itself sacred ground.

This is a lovey stop with a museum and memorial. Impeccably kept and monumental - worth a stop. It is open every day 9-5 with an english speaker available to help.

Yet Another Beautiful Resting Place
Sep 2018 • Friends
Until this WWI battlefield tour, I was unaware that there are so many beautiful American cemeteries in France. The American Battle Monuments Commission does a fabulous job in maintaining these hallowed places. This one is a bit smaller but in some ways easier to visit than some of the others. The superintendent showed us Joyce Kilmer's grave and our guide read the poem "Trees." There is a small visitor center on site along with a lovely chapel where one can reflect on such a catastrophic war and the people who suffered.

Place with a secret

Another beautifully kept WW1 cemetery with over 6000 graves. The flag was at half mast when we visited for the death of Senator Cain. The precision of the layout is amazing and the chapel a great place to reflect on the senseless waste of life. In addition to the four main plots there is a secret plot where some 50 US soldiers from WW2, convicted of crimes and executed, were buried. You can only get in if you are a relative.

A beautiful place to visit. Well kept grounds and serene atmosphere at the American WW1 war grave cemetery. The information office has a lot of the history which was worth reading before going across the road to the graves. 6000 US servicemen are buried here having died in action in July to September 1918. 591 are in unmarked graves. “Lest we forget”

Moving and memorable

Having been to a handful of the Battle Monuments Commission Cemeteries maintained by the US government, I am consistently moved and amazed by how beautiful and peaceful they are. Whether in France or the Philippines they are impeccably maintained and a true place of remembrance for our fallen soldiers. Americans can be rightly proud of how they are cared for. You will not regret time spent here.

We visited this cemetery to honor a USMC Captain who saved the life of my grandfather during the Second Battle of the Marne in July 1918. This location is out of the way, relatively small and quiet. The grounds are meticulously cared for. The poet Joyce Kilmer is also buried here. The American Battle Monuments Commission helped us locate the grave and we were able to order flowers locally. The memorial colonnade contains a list of those killed but never found. There is a small visitor center. The visitor center was unlocked but not staffed when we stopped by. There was a note posted with a phone number for reaching staff if needed.
