Mardasson Memorial - European Road Trip day Five, part 2

 Unveiled in 1950, the Mardasson Memorial is a tribute from the people of Belgium to those Americans who fell on it's soil.  The edifice is in the shape of a 5-pointed star and is 12 metres high.
 The roof is accessible by means of a spiral staircase.

  The monuments bears the names of all 48 states.
 Quite a view!

 The pillars bear the names and insignia of all of the US divisions which fought in Belgium.
