The Oise-Aisne military cemetery was created on the very spot where the 42Nd American Division ,the so-called " Rainbow Division " fought . Among the 6,012 graves is that of poet joyce kilmer, a sergeant in the 165th regiment (42nd Division), who was killed on july 30th 1918 .You will see the grave .

Vee the Roosevelt story was very interesting but the photos of the Oise-Asine Cemetery are what took my

attention. It is obviously a beatiful place in a great setting, I can understand why it means so much to you.

Thanks for the pictures, Vee. As usual, they are very well done, document just about all there is to see there, and make me wish I could visit!

 

The relief carvings were very neat - I love that blocky Art Deco style that was popular at the time. (If I'm wrong about that and it is some other art style - someone let me know.)

 

Here is one of my favorites:
