You cannot travel far in this part of France without seeing World War I memorials large and small. The graveyard and memorial in Arras was especially moving.

The Tour television coverage in France includes many quiet moments with the helicopter camera hovering over World War I memorials. I hope the coverage in the US is doing the same. IMG_1288

    My Grandfather was stationed in Paris during the war. I have a wonderful picture of him standing by the Arche de Triomphe. 🙂
