At the American Military Cemetery in Luxembourg, remains of 5,076 soldiers are buried, 101 of which are unknown. My favorite inscription surrounds the mosaic on the ceiling of the chapel and reads:
Also an inscription set in the granite paving at the center of the memorial terrace from Eisenhower’s dedication speech:
ALL WHO SHALL HEREAFTER LIVE IN FREEDOM WILL BE HERE REMINDED THAT TO THESE MEN AND THEIR COMRADES WE OWE A DEBT TO BE PAID WITH GRATEFUL REMEMBRANCE OF THEIR SACRIFICE AND WITH THE HIGH RESOLVE THAT THE CAUSE FOR WHICH THEY DIED SHALL LIVE ETERNALLY.
So on Memorial Day this year, please gratefully remember their sacrifice and resolve that the cause for which they died shall live eternally.
