American Cemetery

The American Cemetery for the people who lost their lives during the D-day invasion is amazing. I am only posting a few pictures because it is mainly a bunch of grave markers (crosses and the star of David). A chappel and a few really nice memorials dedicated to the Americans who landed on the shores of Normandy dot the landscape as well. It is a very respectful and peaceful place and gives due tribute to those killed in battle. The most emotional part is reading the comments in the guest book in the reception hall.
