|The main entrance to the cemetery|
Let me note here that yes, that is snow on the ground and yes it was very cold that day, so I have no close up headstone photos. In fact many of my photos are taken out my car window.

An annual ceremony is now held in honor of the German Veterans buried here.
The cemetery overall was amazing to see. I was awestruck by the beauty and the size of the cemetery. it seems that only a small portion of the cemetery is used and much wooded property is still available for future use. I felt a great sense of pride in the military men and women buried here.
