My husband and I were stationed in Germany in the 80's and visited this cemetery several times. When my parents came to visit us we brought them here. It was especially meaningful for my father as he served under General Patton during world war two. It is such a beautiful place and a peaceful resting place for our soldiers who paid the ultimate price.
Somber resting place of American heroes. It contains the graves of those who died in the Bulge and the aftermath. General Pattom is there with the troops. Extreamly well kept and neat. Lots of 101 and 82 paratroopers as well.
This is a cemetery where 5,075 service members lie in peace. It's also the resting place of George S. Patton Jr., General of the 3rd Army. The cemetery was established 29 December 1944. A treaty signed in 1951 between the United States and Luxembourg allowed the U.S to use land for FREE for the cemetery. Visit the chapel if you get a moment while visiting. This is a place of silence and respect for those who lost their lives to save millions.
Military American Cemetery in Luxembourg. Special interest the grave of General Patton. Rest in peace.
This is more for people who are interested in the Battle of the Bulge and General Patton. Many graves of Jewish and Christian soldiers lay here. Quiet and serene cemetery for American soldiers who fought in the battle.
