This hotel is above a pizzeria. We didn't eat there but it smelled great. Lobby is small but nice. Our room was very small but the double bed and bath were comfy. Shower was hot but very small. The walls are very thin and we could hear a baby crying next door. Wifi worked great so all was well. The breakfast was simple, typical European but good. Probably wouldn't choose this again.

... just over the border to Luxembourg. Okay? So, really it could have happened anywhere in this tiny little country. Hell, Luxembourg is about the size of Rhode Island.
And remember Rob, it's been 70 years. A lot has changed in 70 years. Hell, it's probably a parking lot now.
But I thought . . . if I follow that road east out of Arlon, and I see where that road crosses ...
... part of what was to become the Ninth Army. AAA stands for Anti Aircraft Artillery. AW stands for automatic weapons. BN stands for mobile. Their job was to protect ground troops from German aircraft and offer ground support when needed.
