We were so fortunate to be able to visit this incredible Memorial to our brave soldiers from WWII! The inept President and Congress had this Cemetery and Memorial closed for two weeks and when we arrived at the gates it was closed. The very next day it opened so we were indeed very lucky. Many people came to see this wonderful place and were turned away over that period of time. It is just heartwrenching to read what the men suffered bravely and what they did to keep the whole world free. If anyone doubts the necessity of a standing military force, this should change their minds. Many of the men who died were barely adults, but gave their lives for our country. The day we visited it was sunny and beautiful and the Cemetery looked lovely, but our hearts were full of sadness for those who died so long ago and thankfulness that they went to a far away country to defend the its people. The visitor center is exceptional and full of information and pictures from the time. This is really so amazing a Cemetery and Memorial that you should go if you are anywhere near at all.
