Stuttgart is a biking town and cycling is a major form of transportation to and from work, as well as riding for enjoyment. With the warm weather ahead, cyclists are popping up all over, hopping off and on the S-Bahn, riding in the woods, or just taking a short trip to the market. Cycling is a healthy and scenic opportunity to see Stuttgart in a whole new way.

You may even know a friend or two who bike to work or post. I interviewed my good friend Tom and asked him these questions about his weekly cycling commute. How often do you bike commute to work? Twice per week, when I do not have duty obligations before 7:30 a.m. Do you use an app for directions, and if so, which one? If not, what would you recommend for learning routes? No app, but I use Google Maps Aerial View to find trails and avoid heavy traffic areas. What kind of bike would you recommend for someone interested in bike commuting? I came with a full suspension mountain bike which did work, but the commuter bikes and road bikes passing me got old in a hurry. I replaced it with a hard tail (front shocks

only) that has a handlebar mounted front shock lockout, which makes it very confident to switch the front shock. After riding through the winter and finding the many trails, I would recommend a hard tail. It handles most conditions and is much faster than the full suspension mountain bike. What are some safety precautions you take before or while commuting? I suggest a good helmet that allows room for a hat when temps drop, plenty of reflective gear, gloves (summer and winter), Gortex shoe covers, and a sturdy front light with high output. Do you have favorite routes? I vary my route to Panzer, but I really enjoy the tank trail from Panzer to Patch. It has no traffic with plenty of other outdoor enthusiasts and the occasional deer. Any other advice or helpful hints you would like to share? Explore potential commuter routes on the weekend when you have more time or on the bike ride home. I try to avoid taking the same route every week and time my rides home to increase the workout value.

Cycling Trails Cycling trails in Baden-Württemberg are some of the easiest to follow with signage at almost every turn. Below is a list of sites that will help with your trail search. I absolutely love using Tourism in Germany or Cycling in Germany because I can plan scenic routes for my family. I also use the VVS Radfahren Planner App but only for time and general location information. A couple of other good sites to use are en and routes/?location=Stuttgart,%20Germany. There is also a Facebook page

for the American Stuttgart Cycling Community as well. This is a closed group, but you may ask to join. If I need a GPS while cycling, I use Google Maps App. When using it, just make sure you change the mode to cycling. Also, check your settings when planning your route, for traffic patterns, etc.

Bauernhof: Life on the farm Looking for an easy, stress-free, authentic holiday experience? Farm holidays at a Bauernhof located in Germany and across Europe are great for cyclists, hikers, sports and recreation enthusiasts, or for those just looking to take in a peaceful landscape. Farm holidays offer relaxation, recreation and interesting activities for all ages. Those on holiday can ride horses, help with farm chores, enjoy spa retreats, walk forest trails, swim in lakes and soak in the natural beauty of Europe. Most farms offer a hearty farmer’s breakfast with fresh regional products. Scattered across every region of Germany, Bauernhöfe offer a range of accommodations. Many farms offer cozy apartments with swimming pools, spa opportunities and Internet. Others require you to roll out your sleeping bag and hit the hay in the farmer’s barn loft. One hotel in Bavaria, Bett im Kornfeld, allows guests to sleep in a wheat field on a brass bed with a hay mattress. This stay offers breakfast, an outdoor shower and a construction trailer toilet. For more information, call Bett im Kornfeld at 0362-9608. These farm vacations extend through all of Europe in countries such as Spain, Italy and Austria. Whether you are looking to pick or stomp

Sleep By Dr. Krystal White AdvantiPro contributing writer

Most people crave even a tiny sliver of sun during the bleak winter months, but by the time summer arrives, experts warn that much desired hours of extra daylight in the summer contribute to sleep problems. Seventeen to 18 hours of sunlight can completely alter your regular sleep patterns. Combine that with a summer schedule (having kids home from school or a long vacation) and higher temperatures, and you’ve got a recipe for sleep deprivation. Although stress is the number one reason people report that they lose sleep, many things can cause insomnia: poor sleep habits, being sick or ill, going through hormone changes, having chronic pain, restless legs syndrome, being overweight, or sleep apnea. Dr. Ohayon, MD, a sleep expert at Stanford University who has been surveying the prevalence of sleep disorders in the U.S. since 1990, reported that sleep problems become more prevalent during summer months, jumping from 10 percent of the adult population up to 25 percent. Given that many people don’t already get the recommended amount of sleep during the rest of the year, summer months compound the issue. “Regular schedules are often disrupted in the summer when school is out and this can lead to poor sleep routine,” said Dr. Daniels,

HEALTH pediatrician at LRMC. “The sun stays out later too, suppressing some of the natural sleep drive, making it even harder to fall asleep.” Sleep Deprivation is associated with a decrease in IQ points, more negative behavior, more parent-to-child and more peer-to-peer conflict. Kids that gets less than eight hours are more likely to be labeled “trouble-makers” by teachers, and also diagnosed with ADHD. Adults who get less than seven hours over a three month period, are more likely to get into motor vehicle accidents. Sleep deprivation is related to avoidable weight gain and irrational decision making skills. Dr. Daniels will be specializing in sleep disorders in a medical fellowship later this year. “Keep a consistent bedtime routine even during summer vacation, particularly a regular wake-up time in the morning,” Daniels said. Also, avoid using laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other light-emitting screens before bedtime. Instead, consider reading books from a summer reading list when getting ready to go to sleep.” Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to combat summertime sleep woes. Follow these guidelines for sleeping soundly. Author's information: Dr. White is a pediatric psychologist at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and the developmental health consultant for Europe Regional Medical Command. She specializes in healthy habits across the lifespan and evaluating developmental disorders.

Guidelines: 1. Control the light and the temperature. Exposure to light and higher temperatures can alter the amount of melatonin in your body’s system. This natural chemical controls the sleep/ wake cycle. Invest in blinds that darken the bedroom and keep them shut through the day. The ideal temperature range for sleeping is 68 degrees to 72 degrees Fahrenheit (19-22 Celsius). Keep a fan or air conditioner and good ventilation in the bedroom to obtain a good night’s rest. 2. Be intentional during holidays. Although you may be tempted to stay up late and sleep in during vacations, this can wreck your sleep habits and health. Staying up late is related to over consumption of food and alcoholic drinks, which also disrupts appropriate sleep quality. Be intentional to avoid long naps during the day and try to maintain as close to your regular wake and sleep times as possible (within one hour to 90 minutes in either direction). 3. Calm down: Within 90 minutes of bedtime, refrain from: TV watching, computer playing (highly stimulating visually), physical activity, make sure that your kids have no caffeine at all after 5 p.m. Keep them away from chocolate, tea and carbonated drinks, but a snack is okay. Warm milk continues to demonstrate effective relaxation. 4. Set a specific bedtime and stick to it. Your child’s body clock will adjust much more quickly to the routine if the routine follows a natural and consistent pattern. 5. Follow a routine: A good routine might include dinner, clean-up, light activity, bath, snack, a ritual good night activity and then 1 to 2 books in bed, hugs and kisses, lights off, nightlight on. Ritual Activity Ideas: • Many kids (ages 2 and above) enjoy going around the room or the house and saying goodnight to favorite toys, people,

The Citizen, July 23, 2015

and other objects, much as the baby rabbit and his mother do in Goodnight Moon. “Our favorite bedtime ritual is saying goodbye and goodnight to the sun,” Know when to say when, though (five minutes); if your toddler insists on saying goodnight to every brick in the living room wall, it’s a safe bet he’s trying to put off bedtime a little longer). • Use a “dream buddy,” or a stuffed non-electronic toy who can only be used in bed. The child and dream buddy protect each other, and some kids love choosing three things/people dream buddy says “goodnight” to each night. 6. Noises off. No TV in bedrooms, no phones (kids text!) in bedrooms, no music to sleep with in bedrooms. If a parent says “but he needs it to fall asleep!” know that he has learned to fall asleep with it, and can learn to fall asleep without it. It is a process to remove those items, but given that sleep deprivation comes at such a behavioral cost, it’s well worth the fight. 7. Stay put: Once child is “upstairs” preparing for bed, he should stay upstairs. If he leaves room, do not talk, or say anything, but physically take him back to the room. 8. Keep the peace! Bedtime is for sleeping. Nothing else is to be tolerated. Ignore requests for snacks, drinks, bathroom. If he gets upset as he sees you walk out the door after you tuck him in, tell him you’ll be back to check on him in a few minutes. In all likelihood, he’ll be fast asleep by the time you return. Remember: You cannot force a kid to sleep! But you can establish that she must have a bedtime and stay in her room. Make sure you set these clear expectations. Sleep is your body’s number one way to recover, replenish and repair. Make it a staple of your life this summer, and by autumn, you and your family will be healthier and happier.

Food refusals: establishing healthy eating habits for children Story and photo by Dr. Krystal White AdvantiPro contributing writer

Food refusals, sensitive palates, distracted or hyperactive tendencies and dramatic reactions are commonly experienced by parents trying to establish healthy eating habits. Although most parents believe their child is a “picky eater,” in an eating culture that emphasizes abundant choices, many people can be labeled as “finicky” if scrutinized. Grown adults shun onions, won’t touch cooked egg yolks and they pick out green vegetables on communal pizzas. It is quite common for people to prefer one type of cheese over another, or fancy one particular brand of French fry or lunch meat over others. With so many options and so many opportunities to taste different foods, developing strong eating preferences is easy. Most parents and children battle it out over these eating habits and preferences quite publically. Unlike other routines, such as bathing, dressing or bedtime, eating routines are more public and visible to others outside the home. Children who are hard to feed often draw more attention to themselves than children who are difficult to put to bed. It’s easy to understand, therefore this is why parents often become more stressed during dinner time than during bedtime. Children have to eat and parents feel it is their job not only to feed them, but to ensure that they eat enough and right. Parents worry about how much or how little their children eat and this causes stress. The parent-child relationship around feeding remains one of the most challenging and humbling jobs of parenting. Here are the four main big food fights parents and children have: noncompliance (refuses to eat what is served), complaining about what is offered, not “eating enough” and leaving

"Peer pressure" trying new foods with your toddler works well when done as a group.

the table during mealtimes. A lot of parents worry that their child is not eating enough. Adults forget that children have smaller stomachs and assume that their portions should be larger. It is helpful to remember that the size of a toddler’s stomach is close to the size of their fist. A dozen or so “bites” is enough for toddlers. The best advice for parents is to ask their pediatrician if a child is at a healthy weight for his or her age. Parents should strive not to worry about how much a child eats during their meal. Most of the time, children tend to get enough of their nutritional needs over the course of a week. Parents with the least amount of difficulty feeding their children have learned to adjust their focus away from the amount of what is eaten toward giving access to a wide range of healthy foods and letting children decide on what to eat from the selection given to them. Just like adults, kids tend to eat more on some days and less on others. Julie Webb-Keltepe, a Landstuhl Regional Medical Center speech and language therapist who specializes in brief treatment of children with feeding disorders, advises parents. “When introducing new foods, repeated exposure is necessary for the food to become a preferred taste,” WebbKeltepe said. “Try to not respond to refusal behaviors. If the child is young, you may need to degrade the texture (solid to fork mashed or fork mashed to puree) to gain initial acceptance.” The more distressed parents become that “he’s not eating,” the more distressed a child’s eating will become. Parents should try not worry about his size or weight unless a doctor informs you that they are behind in their physical development. In an age where the food industry markets to children quite intentionally, knowing what to feed your child can also be overwhelming. Children should be given fruits, vegetables and protein to try every day. Snacks should be eaten one hour before bed, and not offered for those who “ate their dinner.” If you are going to do nighttime snacks or sweets, everyone should be given access to them. If you reward eating dinner with sweets, you are fostering active dislike of the food presented at mealtime and more intense attraction of having dessert. The more you restrict foods, and save unhealthy foods or sweets as a bribe, the more likely the treat will be desired. Always offer dessert, or one treat a day no matter what (meaning, it is not a bribe) and you control your choices. Treats don't have to be processed — they can be fruits, jam on bread, cheese

cubes, steamed colorful veggies or a even a spoonful of honey. Children are new-food-phobic by nature. Research shows a repeated less than 10 neutral exposures within a short timeframe enhance acceptance of new foods. The best thing a parent can do is to keep exposing their children to the same food over and over again. After 10 times of trying a food and not liking it, it's probably safe to say that your child does not truly “like” it. Remember that talking about eating isn't really fun, for the parent or for the child. Don’t comment or try to explain to them how to eat better; modeling is more powerful. Try not to comment on what or how much your kids are eating. Be as neutral as possible. Remember, you’ve done your job as a parent by giving access to the food, now let them learn to eat without needing your encouragement. Feeding children can feel like a battlefield. Here are a few tricks to prepare you better for potential “fights.” 1) Have it your way: Kids want food choices and so do you, so limit choices to two within each food category (“Do you want juice or milk?” “Peas or carrots?). Involve kids in these choices when making dinner, but make sure you don't care about their selection: “Should we have pasta or pizza?” Kids should help decide one item at every meal, increasing the chances on them eating something. 2) Just say no. Don't become a shortorder cook. Say “the kitchen closes at 7” and mean it. People will always prefer a meal, hand-tailored to their preferences, over a family style selection. If you always allow your child to eat something he prefers later after the meal or as a separate meal from the family, he won’t learn how to accommodate other foods into his palate. 3) Be a role model. If you're constantly on a diet or have erratic eating

habits, your children will grow up thinking that this sort of behavior is normal. Be honest with yourself about the kinds of food messages you're sending. Trust your body to tell you when you're hungry and when you're full, and your kids will learn to do the same. Eat what’s healthy. If you don’t want your children eating something, don’t have it in the house as an option (or at least have it out of their sight). 4) Go with the flow: Children will be inconsistent. So expect a hearty appetite one day and little the next, or hate a certain food and then love it. Enjoy these surprises and don’t try to control their appetite. 5) Trick or Treat: If you are going to use food as a reward, only use it for one non-eating related behavior: potty training, after doing a chore, taking turns, getting ready for school. If you start to give kids food for more than one specific behavior, they will ask for sweets more and more. 6) Whining is going to happen: Whining peaks between age 3 and 4. It is a stage, just as learning to walk, read or going through puberty. Expect it, keep your cool and learn to ignore it. When kids whine about food, the best bet is for you to bite your tongue. At least at some point in a family’s life feeding children will be difficult. However, as parents become more tolerant of their child’s negative reactions to the “food learning curve,” the more resilient a family’s eating habits become. Eating together is one of the most rewarding parts of a family’s culture.

She specializes in healthy habits across the lifespan and evaluating developmental disorders.

White beans with poached egg, wilted greens and brown-butter Lemon Sauce

Photo by Martin Turzak/

Garlic and brown-butter soaked beans and eggs pop with bright flavors. This is a perfect meal for a quick date night during the busy work week. Servings: 2 1 can white beans, drained and rinsed 3 fresh eggs, (more or less depending on how hungry you feel and what else is being served) 1 bunch (about 10 ounces) Swiss chard, (sliced into thin ribbons) washed, stems removed, and sliced 4 garlic cloves, sliced 1 pinch red pepper 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons lemon juice salt and pepper Poached eggs: Fill a pot with 4 inches of water and bring to a hot simmer. Crack the eggs into individual measuring cups and slowly slip them in the simmering water. Poach eggs for 5 minutes and then transfer to a bowl filled with warm water.

Cook greens and garlic: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the garlic, greens and a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute until the chard wilts and the garlic is pungent. Add red pepper flakes and transfer mixture to a separate plate. Brown the butter: With the skillet back over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Continue to cook it, swirling the butter occasionally in the pan until the butter darkens and begins to smell nutty. Remove from heat and whisk in the lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. The lemon juice will make the butter sizzle up and sputter before cooling down. Plate together: Line the bottom of a plate with beans. Add the greens on top. Slowly remove the poached eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and lay them over the beans. Finally, pour the butter-lemon sauce on top and serve immediately.

high will caramelize the natural sugars in the fruit. Pairing the date balsamic cream (found in specialty shops in the farmer’s market or in most large German supermarkets) with creme fraiche and a little sprinkle of salt and pepper, will add a unique, bright balance of flavors that you’ll crave all summer long.

Exploring Garmisch-Partenkirchen A guide to Garmisch’s natural beauty and relaxation Story and photos by Amie LaSalvia AdvantiPro contributing writer

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a beautiful place to visit, located right at the foot of the Alps. Garmisch and Partenkirchen used to be two separate places, but were merged for the 1936 Winter Olympics. It's a threehour drive from Stuttgart, but it is definitely worth the drive with places to stop and stretch your legs along the way as you admire the beautiful scenery.

Hiking around Garmisch During the summer months in Garmisch, the climate is perfect for outdoor activities for anyone who loves nature. Hikers can explore countless miles of walks and leisurely hikes around the amazing alpine lakes and there are many great trails for families. The Alpine mountains are truly a breathtaking place to spend some time and enjoy nature.

Neuschwanstein Castle Neuschwanstein Castle is without a doubt a “must do” before, during or after a trip to Garmisch. The castle is found in the Alps and the view is worth seeing. When taking a trip to the castle, be sure to get there as early as possible if you want to take a tour of the inside. You will need to make sure you purchase a ticket from the ticket office located at the foot of the hill.

The walk up to the castle is about 30 to 40 minutes — if you don’t fancy the walk, or if you’re seeking a more romantic approach, there is a horse and carriage that will take you to and from the castle. When walking up the winding road, there are some great photo opportunities by the waterfall and streams that run down the mountain. Once you reach the top, there is a magnificent panoramic view. This magical castle was the inspiration for the Disney castle and was once home to King Ludwig. For more information and for tickets, visit tourist/.

Zugspitze Mountain Nestled in the Alps right outside of Garmisch is Zugspitze Mountain, Germany’s tallest mountain. The mountain is 2962 meters (9718 feet) high. There is a cable car that will take you straight to the peak which you will find right next to the Eibsee parking lot. Once you are at the top of this mountain, on a clear day, you are able to see mountain peaks of four different countries: Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Germany. You will also get a glimpse of 400 different mountain peaks. The border between Germany and Austria runs along the west summit, also a great place for outstanding photos. While you are enjoying the beautiful views, take advantage of the panorama restaurant that

serves fantastic dishes while you enjoy the scenery. Between Sept. 19 and 27, Zugspitze hosts their annual Oktoberfest where they serve original Paulaner beer, Tyrolean and Bavarian delicacies, and play great traditional Oktoberfest music. For more information or to reserve a table, visit

Edelweiss Resort There are many great places to stay in Garmisch but the Edelweiss Lodge Resort is one of the best. It is available to Department of Defense ID cardholders, retirees and dependents. This lodge not only has great room prices, it also offers its guests a number of things to do. At the end of a long day, spend time in the resort’s wellness club which includes a gym, indoor heated pool, outdoor hot tub, wet and dry saunas, massage therapy and a refreshing juice bar. Not only do guests have unlimited access during their stay to the wellness club, but they also have access to some great restaurants. The resort has countless summer outdoor activities and tours. You can pick up information from their gift store or at the front desk. Be sure to ask about the Partnach Gorge tour, biking and hiking adventures, indoor rock climbing, water sports and paragliding.

His most famous works ining town with many links to its his- clude “Girl With a Pearl Earring” and toric past. The city is well known as domestic interior scenes such as “The an important Milkmaid.” The town of Delft has played a particularly important role in Dutch history because it was where William of Orange, the founder of what became the Netherlands today, met his end when he was brutally murdered by Balthazar Gerards in 1572. William of Orange, “Father of the Fatherland,” was laid to rest in the New Church where his tomb can still be visited today.

most popular tourist attractions in the Netherlands. The market square is the beating heart of a remarkably well-preserved city centre which is highlighted by the medieval structure of its canals and streets. Take a stroll through the center, enjoy the old mansions with their gables, the quaint boutiques and the pleasant, relaxed ambience. A trip to Delft would not be complete without a visit to the original Delft Pottery. It’s the perfect opportunity to get behind the scenes and look at the meticulous production process, which even today, relies entirely on handwork; a tradition that began at the start of the 17th century. Nowadays, almost all the Delft Pottery that is sold in souvenir shops is not hand-painted anymore, but rather printed and mass-produced. However, the family-owned Delft Pottery, “De Delftse Pauw,” and their renowned artists, keep the rich tradition alive by painting every single piece entirely by hand. This precise process results in individual pieces of art, not only unique in style, but also

in color and shape. De Delftse Pauw is situated along an idyllic canal in a typical Dutch setting in Delft-Noord, just near the border of Delft and Rijswijk. The centuries-old pottery factory treats its visitors to a private tour through the ateliers where during the week painters can be observed working, paying attention to even the smallest details of the decorations. During the tour, visitors discover how, during the first stage of production, the initial shapes are produced by pouring fluid clay into molds. The second part of the production process involves the painting with a mystical black paint. A look at the process demonstrates why the pottery is known for its personal approach and authenticity. Another “must-see” is the Delftse Pauw showroom and shop, which exhibits the company’s entire range of products. The factory also offers worldwide shipping, and you can be sure that each of your purchased items will come with the Delft Pottery certificate of authenticity. For details, visit

Lorraine American Cemetery: remembering fallen US heroes Story and photos by Thomas Warner Contributing writer

Now more than 70 years since the close of the last world war and 50-plus years since it’s inception, Lorraine American Cemetery endures as a must-see site in this portion of Europe. Dedicated in 1960 as a resting place for thousands of U.S. military war casualties, the cemetery stayed true to its mission and has always been a spot for reproach, respite, remembrances and tranquility. Lorraine American Cemetery is one of 14 cemeteries throughout the free world operated and maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission. More than 10,400 service members with ties to America are buried at Lorraine and over 210,000 are buried altogether at American Battle Monuments Commission cemeteries. Family members of the deceased often visit from afar, wandering through the rows of bleach-white headstones. Most are cross-topped, but the Jewish graves are marked with a Star of David and each headstone carries with it a separate and unique story. Covering a range of approximately 113 acres, Lorraine American Cemetery is specifically grand in appearance with nine large tracts unique in their symmetrical structure, stretching outward from the expansive visitor center and chapel monuments at the foot of the property. “Myself, the superintendent and anyone who works here have the two most important missions,” said LAC Assistant Superintendent Melanie

Headstones for burial sites of Jewish soldiers at Lorraine American Cemetery are marked with the Star of David.

Over 10,000 American service members were laid to rest at the magnificent cemetery located near St. Avold, France.

Resto. “We are to make sure the stories of all the service members buried here are told and that they are never forgotten.” Along with the 10,487 headstones on the cemetery grounds is a Wall of Missing, with names of people who were never accounted for. A small brown rosette is affixed by the name if the remains were at some point found. When this has happened, personnel with the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command came to Europe to contact next-of-kin and put the repatriation process in motion. Situated just 20 miles inside the northern cusp of France, the town of St. Avold was under German control at various times before and after World War II. It became part of a new German empire after the Prussian forces defeated the French and took control of this region around 1870. Following completion of each of the world wars, the region again belonged to France and today the region is so overly patriotic that it is not uncommon to see U.S. flags at many spots and at numerous celebrations throughout the year to celebrate towns being liberated or recreations of past wartime events.

“Initially there were four cemeteries in this area where American military members were buried,” said Resto, one of three administrative curator personnel who staff the cemetery. “They were at Limey, Andilly, Hochfelden and here at St. Avold.” Following the war, France deeded a large tract of land at St. Avold to the United States perpetually and a consolidated resting place was planned. That gift from France happened near the end of 1948 and early 1949 so families of each service member were given the choice of whether to keep the remains of their loved one at a cemetery here, or to have the remains brought back to the United States for reburial. Initially, there were almost 30,000 burials of U.S. service members at the four-area cemeteries combined, but that number decreased to just over 10,000 when many families chose to bring their loved ones’ remains back for interments in the United States. There were detailed records of everyone who had been buried here in Europe and it was a diligent process to give each one their proper attention during the repatriation, and the final work done to create Lorraine

American Cemetery between the close of World War II and the eventual 1960 dedication. The link to that particular land on the northeastern edge of France, being chosen as grounds for a cemetery, related to continuous fighting that took place there when Allied forces sought in late 1944 to push the Germans out of nearby Metz and other towns, back across the historic German stronghold known as the Siegfried Line. St. Avold was a central and strong piece of the German infrastructure during the halcyon days of the Third Reich. “A lot of fighting took place here, but not all the people buried here actually died here,” Resto said. “The remains have come from as far west as near Paris and eastward all the way to Czechoslovakia, or south to Sicily.” Most of the 22 staffers at the Lorraine are involved with the immaculate landscaping detail at the memorial. This work is never ending and helps to create a sense of lasting honor for visitors and those interred here. The cemetery is staffed at all times by someone in the visitor center and is open every day of the year except for Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. For more information, call (00) 33-3879-20732.
