It’s worth checking out. This place is for registering personal information. The cemetery is made up of American soldiers who died in the Philippine battlefield. The size and style are very similar to the Wellington International Cemetery in the United States. They are all white crosses, and all are covered. The most worth seeing of this place is the corridor on both sides of the two national flags in the center of the square. Here are some battle maps of important battles.
The place where I live overlooks the American cemetery, but unfortunately the door is open on the other side, so you have to walk a long way inside. The range is very large, it takes a long time to drive in it, and it takes a few hours to walk, and it’s too sunny during the day. I can go in in the evening.
A sobering monument & cemetery. Take the time to come out to BGC & see this magnificent & sobering cemetery.
one of the greatest memorial i have ever been to !
The Manila US Army Memorial Cemetery is free of admission, but you must register at the entrance to enter. A total of 17,206 American and Allied soldiers who died in World War II are buried here. It looks more like a park, with towering trees, and the carpet-like lawn is more beautiful than a golf course. Due to the high terrain, the noise is almost inaudible in the cemetery. On each cross, the name of a soldier who died was engraved. The tombstone for Christians is a cross, and for Jews, there is a monument in the center of the six-pointed star cemetery, and there is a horseshoe-shaped porch on the periphery with a map inlaid on it. In the map room, there are military materials and 25 exquisite maps, which witnessed the great victories of the US armed forces in the Pacific region, China, India, and Myanmar.
Knowing that there is a US military cemetery in the Philippines, I took a taxi to visit it. The doorman needs to register with passport information when entering the door. After registering, I started to enter, and I saw the white crosses standing on the green grass. It felt a little endless. Perhaps it was because I knew that they were the tombstones of soldiers. The shock was beyond words! Looking deeper, I saw the densely engraved names, time, etc. on the wall, as if they were all heroes standing in front of me!
