  3. Great looking monument to yet another conflict. How many wars must we have before we realize it is so futile? I was just reading a piece the other day about how the United States has been continuously at war somewhere in the world since WWII. And it doesn't seem set to end any time soon, especially if that whack job Trump were ever to get elected.

    1. Generally there are flowers at every grave but it seems they have had a clear out. Maybe they will plant new ones.
      Have a good week Diane

    1. It seems like it was only winter yesterday..... They are all forest areas, but management apparently is so good here that despite the wood cutting for building, furniture and winter wood burning, the forests in France grow bigger each year. Good news :-) Diane
