Photo by @hellokrisdavidson // A French military band leads the procession following a Memorial Day ceremony at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery and Memorial in France. The cemetery spans 130.5 acres, and is the final resting place of the largest number of American military dead in Europe (14,246). Most of those buried here lost their lives during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of World War I. I was honored to have photographed this as a part of a Memorial Day feature story for National Geographic Traveler a couple of years ago. Although an alarming amount of barbed wire and human bones remain in the verdant forests of the Meuse region, most of the bomb-cratered, blood-drenched landscape has been covered with soft, green grass that encourages leisurely picnics. It is a beautiful place to visit, and if you go I suspect that you’ll sense how memory whispers through the green forests with the grace that only comes with age. #MemorialDay
