Luxembourg Military Cemetery

We visited the American military cemetery where over 5000 soldiers rest.  The casualties buried here are predominantly from the Battle of the Bulge.  General George Patton is also interned here in front of all his men.  My father served in Patton's 3rd army (95th division, 377 regiment, Company H) and fought in the bloody battles of Metz, Saulaurten, and the Rhineland campaign to capture Dortmund.  Today was a strong reminder of those who sacrificed for our freedom.
