On the way home from Metz, we stopped in Luxembourg for a quick visit to the American Cemetery Memorial. This cemetery is reminiscent of the ones in Normandy and Arlington. There is an American part and a German part. Thousands of men were killed in the attempt to take Germany.
These are the military kids that were with us today. We are proud of them, so young and very dedicated.
It is very quiet and the memorials are beautiful. It is touching just to be in that space and think about the young men who were sacrificed for us and for the world.
General George Patton is buried there. It is interesting that he was a 4 star general and yet his grave marking is exactly the same as the privates buried there. He wanted to be buried with his men.
We all pitched in for some last day projects and cleaning. Home tomorrow!
- safe travel tomorrow
- please pray for the kids we met while here
