    This military cemetery does a man be silent. The unreality of war. Many young American soldiers are buried here. Everything nicely maintained. In the interactive visitor centre one can see in a short summary, with picture and sound, how this war has destroyed many lives.

    The cemetery is always perfectly maintained and exudes a great serenity. You still if you walk around here. The recently opened visitors ' Centre is a added value by the historical explanation of the site. The film as intro can be viewed is interesting and clear.

    A must to visit. The video in the visitor center needs to be watched. Locals have adopted the graves of these soldiers, learn about their lives, bring flowers, and honor them throughout the year. The men are not alone or forgotten.

    Without a doubt, one of the most moving experiences I've had in recent years in visiting a cemetery. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the staff informative and knowledgable and accessible, and the dead are revered with the highest of respect at this impressive and hallowed ground. Makes me proud to be an American.

    Having been to many of the American Cemetery in Europe, I enjoyed walking around this one. It is the smallest of the ABMC. The parking lot is very small. That would be the only downside. Still nice place to visit and pay your respects.

    We've been here twice for Memorial Day observances. Very small compared to most WW1 cemeteries, but just as well done and moving as any other.
