WWII veterans Bill Parker and Bennett Stampes visited Luxembourg American Cemetery where many of their brother-in-arms are buried. When seeing the sea of headstones, Parker said: "I didn't think there were so many."
For both, this was their first trip back to Europe since the war.

Bill Parker, from Tulsa, OK, was part of the first wave that came ashore on D-Day, June 6, 1944, with the 116th Infantry Regiment (which sustained almost 100% casualties).

Bennett Stampes, from Dallas, TX, was part of the administrative staff, but was eventually sent to the front line with the 86th Infantry Division, and was wounded near the Rhine-Ruhr river crossing.

Bill and Bennett's stories have now become part of the stories that will be told at Luxembourg American Cemetery so that they and their comrades are never forgotten.

Luxembourg American Cemetery is now the resting place for more than 5,000 service members.

The cemetery was established on December 29, 1944 by the 609th Quartermaster Company of the U.S. Third Army while Allied Forces were stemming the enemy's desperate Ardennes Offensive, one of the critical battles of World War II.

CIMETIERE AMERICAIN DE SAINT – AVOLD – MOSELLE LE TITRE – 10 489 – Le thème – Conversation entre 3 jeunes américains enterrés au LORRAINE and AMERICAN CEMETERY, et 2 jeunes adolescents nommés CLEMENCE et JULES venant leur rendre hommage... .Hello young people, you often come to visit us, we recognize you . (Bonjour les jeunes, vous venez souvent ns rendre visite, nous vous reconnaissons. ) ( Les jeunes étonnés de ces voix d' outre tombe, tournent la tête, à droite à gauche, derrière eux et demeurent comme pétrifiés ) Do not be afraid, we are not dead, we are sleeping ... ( N' ayez pas peur, on n' est pas mort, on dort...) Cela fait un moment qu'on est là 1944 ou 1945 on croit, Morts à BITCHE, à ST DIE où à SELESTAT L' important est, qu' on soit tous là Qu'on ne nous ai pas séparés, Et si aucun président n'est venu Ni français ni américain, C'est qu'ils n' ont pas eu le temps, Ont- ils dit, Vous voir tous les deux, Fait énormément de bien Croyez le les enfants, Lorsque Franklin, Winston et Charles nous ont appelés On a tout laissé tomber et on est venu pour vous aider On vous à tous aimés comme on a aimé la France...... Les 2 jeunes – CLEMENCE et JULES...remis de leurs émotions... C'est normal qu'on soit là les gars, Maman est né un 6 juin, et , On est pas près d' oublier, que, Grâce à vous on parle français, On pense en français , on lit en français, Grâce à vous, HARRY, LYLE, BRANDON, On peut aussi parler et discuter en anglais Avec vous, qui un jour, Au mépris de votre vie, Etes venus nous libérer, Vous les 10 489, qui dorment ici Et tous les autres, Qui reposent en France, Et aux 4 coins du monde Libérer notre France, notre peuple, Nous libérer du joug d' un sa**ud, Et d' un pauvre mec Qu' on appelait BENITO... Harry, tu a laissé ta ferme du Texas, Tes arbres fruitiers, tes champs de blés, Lyle, tu a laissé tes gosses et ta femme, Que jamais tu n' a revus, sans verser une larme Brandon, tu as délaissé ton hôpital, Tes patients qui comptaient sur toi, Pour venir nous guérir d'une maladie Venue de Germanie D'un fou furieux appelé ADOLF Et d'un autre , MUSSOLINI Aujourd'hui encore on se demande Si une telle chose arrivait, Partout ailleurs dans le monde Nous irions jusqu' à nous déranger. Il y a aujourd'hui, tant de haine, Tant de mépris et de racisme Ici bas sur cette terre, Que l'on dérive tout droit vers le fascisme Mais jamais nous nous ferons à l'idée Que même à l' issue d'une énorme bataille, Que les 6 millions de morts juifs Ne soient comme pour certains, Qu'un simple détail.. Et si toi Harry, si toi LYLE, si toi BRANDON, Nous avez rappelé, que sur BEDLOE'S ISLAND, Un français nommé BARTOLDI vous a offert, Le plus beau des cadeaux, Celui de cette statue de la Liberté, Cette Liberté éclairant le Monde Nous à aussi ouvert les yeux. Et demain, on vous promets, Qu' au moment d' affronter les extrêmes, De vous HARRY, LYLE et BRANDON, Et de tous les autres, Nous nous inspirerons, Et ensemble, ces sa**uds , Qui n' aiment ni les juifs, Les noirs, les musulmans ou les homos, nous vaincrons Et cela sans trembler même..... ARMAND BEHR AVEC Clémence et Jules. ...
Remembering 1st Lt Leo F Baumann on what would of been his 99th birthday. 🇺🇸🙏🇬🇧
Yesterday, the remains of Staff Sergeant Raymond Carlyle Blanton returned to Richmond Virginia. It was the homecoming after 77 years of missing in action for Sergeant Blanton. I have done many years of research supporting DPAA in this case, and it resulted in the identification of 3 soldiers so far. My main focus has been on Sergeant Blanton, as I have become very close to his family over the last 12 years. To see him finally coming home in full military honors is just incredible. He will be buried on July 1st. Welcome home hero. Welcome home Carlyle. https://9thinfantrydivision.net/raymond-c-blanton/

I went to the Brittany American Cemetery today for Memorial Day. It was very disappointing not to see our war graves with American and French flags as on past Memorial Days. Hopefully, this tradition will restart next year after the covid restrictions are lifted.
