American Cemetary -- Tuscany Region -- About 7 miles south of Florence, we came upon the American Cemetery, one of 24 (14 devoted to WWII) run by the The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) all of them overseas except for the new memorial on the Mall in Washington, D.C. Under these markers rest over 125,000 military. Marble tablets list the names of another 94,000 missing in action. These hallowed spots include several elements with the most impressive by far being the rows of white crosses (with the occasional Star of David.)
