Flanders Field

This was taken at the Flanders Field American Cemetery on Saturday (11/11/2006). The US Army Garrison Brussels Officials honored the fallen with the reading of "in Flanders Field" and the laying of wreaths at the Memorial, also read was the answer to in Flanders Field, which was called "in Flanders Now" by Edna Jacques.

both can be seen here:

It was quite moving to think of those that had fallen and the only identification on their marker is: a Solider Known Only to God
