I visited Europe in the summer of 2013 and took a picture if the resting place of Lawrence bekelwsky. I found the American cemetery on the Normandy coast over whelming. I stood there at Lawrence's grave site and pondered the life of one ask to commit his life for the freedom of others. To Lawren Honored by Robert Conn [2014-04-27 02:08:54]
