Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial, Luxembourg -  May 12, 2008
This U.S. National Cemetery, encompassing 50.5 acres, is just southwest of the Luxembourg Airport and is at the same roundabout one takes to get to the airport off of A1/E25/E44.  Interned at the Memorial and Cemetery are 5,076 Americans that lost their lives in the Battle of the Bulge and the campaign for the Rhine River.  General Patton is the most famous soldier buried here and has a separate location, which was not always the case, as he was originally buried with the rest of the troops, but due to the turf damage caused by all of the foot traffic, he was given his own area.  General Patton was buried on Christmas Day in 1945, and as the procession proceeded to the cemetery through the town, masses of persons stood in the rain that was falling that day to pay their last respects.
