At the American Soldiers Memorial on July 4th
Here I am at the Memorial to the 378 American soldiers who died in Romania during World War II. The memorial is located in Cismigiu Park which is the oldest park in Bucharest. On the left side the wording is in English and on the right it is in Romanian. It expresses the deep appreciation of the Romanians for the ultimate sacrifice these Americans made fighting for the freedom of Romania. Until I came across this memorial I never knew that any American soldiers had been in Romania during World War II.
