Luxembourg keeps the braves!

Well lots to write about and over 1200 pictures from my latest trips to Germany and Luxembourg passing by my France of course. This is an area I have passed by and always left out, so now took the family in and it was great, glad it was done.

By taking the A3 into Luxembourg and then going around the beltway on the A1 ,and get off at N2 you come into signs on Reimech that also tell you of the cementary. The actual town on which the cementary is call Hamm. The American battle monument association keeps it clean and upkeeps it , their webpage is here

And for the most famous name buried there , General George Patton, US 3rd army , thank you Sir. http://www.pattonhq.com/funeral.html

The entrance is nice and has a wrough iron arch door, with a welcoming house on the left. As you go in, sheer adreline pumps up with so many beautiful crosses. The stone plaque on the floor tells of the debt of gratitude we owe these men. There is a tower with a female angel, and the inscription “Here is enshrined the memory of valor and sacrifice”. There are huge stone walls depicting the battle movement and on the back the names of the fallen.

Inside the tower, there is a nice chapel with flanks US flags and the inscription ” I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish”.

I have not arrive at my lodging destination but already thrill to be here in beautiful Luxembourg. In all I stayed on the German side but criss cross the two countries every day ::) Stay tuned for more in the coming posts.

Enjoy the pictures and remember them, never forget their sacrifice. CheersLuxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg Luxembourg
