Memorial Day in Luxembourg

Yesterday we traveled to Luxembourg to visit the Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial.  It was so special seeing a memorial to American soldiers in Europe.  These men (and a female 2LT) died fighting in a war Matt and I have learned about since grade school.

It was especially meaningful that Matt had studied the Battle of the Bulge at Marion, and could explain everything to me - the battle, the Siegfried Line.  I loved watching him soak in the entire experience.  It was a special day for all of us.
