i finally got out to the ww2 cemetary at anzio yesterday, aka sicily-rome cemetery. a very tangible reminder of our veterans’ ultimate sacrifice, and the wall-sized maps&displays captured the italian campaign history well. it was also interesting to learn about the 23 other war memorials we maintain globally – i was surprised to see one in mexico city and carthage, tunisia – but it made sense once i considered the scale of action we saw in both areas at one time. i appreciate the fact that the us gov maintains these grounds 24×7 as tidy as arlington’s standards.
