meetings: Visit to the American Cemetery, 1 March 2015

Visit to the Cambridge American Cemetery, 1 March 2015

When we visited the American Cemetery in May 2014 , the Visitor Center was about to open to the public. This repeat visit was an opportunity to be introduced to the Visitor Center and look at its impressive interpretive displays, led by Arthur Brookes. At 4:30 pm, we were privileged to help lower and fold the American flag.

For further information, see the American Battle Monuments Commission .
