Hardly anywhere else are you going to find such a beautiful example of sacrifice and somber tranquility. In a mega city bustling with activity, this place brings you to the inside of yourself and makes you realize just how beautiful the American and Filipino relationship was. The American and Filipino men and women buried here paid the ultimate price for both nations and is one reason I am so proud to be married to a Filipino.
This is the symbol of Sacrifice and Peace. Being the largest No of Graves for American personnel killed in WW2 in the world. this quiet and peaceful to be inside. visit and respect them. maintain silence.
My great uncle is there . went to visit him . first time a family member had visited in 75 years.was a true humbling experience.also went to Corregidor and a few other locations that he was involved with..I visited on veterans day and they still keep old tradition and they are very thankful still to this day
Well-maintained. Truly a memoir for our World War II soldiers. There are house rules and dress code to observe when visiting the place. Guards allow visitors starting 9am Manila time. Upon entrance provide an ID to the officer on duty.
The American Cemetery is a most do for American visitors to Manila. It is a Washington DC quality memorial to the brave Filipino and American soldiers who fought in WWII. The Philippines campaign is a much overlooked part of WWII history, and this memorial (and a trip to Corregidor if you can manage) will firmly implant a sense of the importance and scale of the war in the Philippines. Don't miss the wall mosaics that display the whole history of the Pacific War with the detail of the old Life magazine maps that I grew up with. The cemetery is also probably the most pleasant green space in all of Manila. No pets, no picnics, no bikes, no running or exercise due to the solemn nature of the place, but a very pleasant stroll.
