We were on the bus by 7:30 because we were heading to Munich, Germany. Our first stop today was the Luxembourg American Cemetery located in the country of Luxembourg.
Over 5,000 are buried here and about 100 of these are unknown soldiers. The only woman buried here is Nancy Leo, a nurse, her sister also served as a nurse during WWII. Nancy was killed when her jeep overturned on her way to Paris to visit her sister!
Below are some pictures of the cemetery.
Also buried here is General Patton. In the spring of 1947 his grave marker was moved from Plot EE to the front so to save the ground and those buried around him.
Before we left the cemetery the veterans in our group and another tour group did a wreath laying ceremony outside the memorial chapel. Below are pictures from the chapel inside and out.
Today’s weather is much cooler and rainy. The first precipitation that we’ve had! We certainly welcomed the cooler temperatures.
On to Munich we go! Our tour director played an anti-Nazi propaganda cartoon made by Disney and was about Hitler!
Our arrival to the hotel, H4 Hotel Munich Messe, was around 6:30 PM and our dinner was at the hotel. We were glad to have a room with air conditioning after three days of oppressive heat and no air at our hotel.
- After dinner we had a great time at the bar with others from our group! After riding on the bus all day it was nice to relax. The bar had these 4 projector screens that had 4 different band and/or singers playing music. It entertained us all!
