This is a very moving experience. It truly honors the sacrifices of so many men that died during this horrific war. It overlooks the city and water on a beautiful hillside. The names are all listed. The crosses across the vast expanse evoke the emotion of what indeed happened. All should experience this place.

Austere and moving, especially for an old Americano veteran. Wanted to return but was too emotional to repeat. It has been five years now and will return for the 4th of July in remembrance of these guys.

As a retired soldier from the US Army I knew I must pay my respects when I visited the Philippines. I entered the cemetery and was met by a Philippine solider at the entrance. When I showed him my retired military ID card he was very professional. I entered and all I could see was thousands of grave markers. Most of them were crosses and a few six pointed stars for the Jewish soldiers. The cemetery is very well kept. I stopped many times and paid respect. I found many soldiers buried here from Minnesota and North Dakota. I will post a few of those pictures and the one from the memorial. It was a place for solemn reflection. My family has served the US military since the revolutionary war. A truly emotional experience and I will return to honor the memory of these heroes when I return to Manila.

Philippine cemeteries are usually chaotic. I wish Philippine cemeteries were as clean and orderly as this one.

Manila American Cemetery and Memorial is magnificently designed and maintained. It was a great honor to be able to visit this place and pay my respects to the brave men (and women) who are buried here. I was also very impressed with the exhibits in the visitor center. With powerful, searing images, accompanied by clear, hard-hitting descriptions, the exhibits showed the true extent of the horror that was caused, in the Philippines, by World War Two. This is the greatest World War Two monument I have seen.

Anyone visiting Manila must make a visit here.
The graves and gardens and visitor centre are kept in an immaculate condition.

A truly humbling experience.

I am a retired Army officer, with Marine enlisted service. Whenever I am in an area that has an American Military Cemetery I stop by for a visit and prayer. This cemetery unlike many others is surrounded by urban Manilla. It is still a peaceful resting place for over 17,000 WWII KIAs. It also commemorates the 37,000 MIAs still missing from the Pacific Theater. It is beautifully maintained as all the cemeteries are. The one drawback is getting there. We came off a cruise ship at the port and spent over an hour in a taxi each way to traverse the 10 miles. The traffic is horrendous in Manilla. Would still do it again.

The cemetery has the names of both Americans and Filipinos who died to fight for Democracy and against imperialism.
I saw names familiar to me- a family coming from my town, I was touched that someone has gave his life for freedom?
A must to see and visit to give insights that freedom along its acquisition entails loss of lives.
