During Jon's time in the Army, Memorial Day took on new meaning for us.  Being in another country has made me more sensitive to truly American holidays.  We don't get Monday as a holiday here, so Sunday night we headed out to the Suresnes American Cemetery.  I had driven by earlier in the week and it was beautifully decorated for this special day.  

It was a nice night and the kids were up for a walk.

It is always good to see the American Flag.

That is the Eiffel Tower in the background.

There are over 1,000 soldiers buried here from WW I and 24 unidentified soldiers from WW II.

It is not the kind of place that makes it to the top of a sight seeing list when you come to Paris, but this is a beautiful place to visit and appreciate the sacrifices that have been made to protect our freedom.
