One of the most impactful places that you can visit in Normandy is the American Cemetery where over 9000 servicemen are laid to rest. Unfortunately, the wet weather impacted our ability to see as much as we would have liked, but hopefully this video will serve to show a bit of what the experience is like.

Thank you for sharing. Man oh man I get it. I've got tears in my eyes watching this.

 

Definitely an emotional place. When you know some of the stories, it just compounds it.

I really wish that I could have went to Normandy and saw it at that time. I have a feeling that it's a bit more built up now than what it was then.

I’ve stood in the middle of the cemetery and looked around me in all directions. Very emotional place with the stones having more meaning than just stone. Thanks for posting another great video.

Thanks! I really do appreciate that. And yes, it is a very weighty place to stand.
