Found in the triangle of crossing roads and faced towards an awesome view to the surroundings, this monument of stone is flanked by two flagpoles, on the left the Stars and Stripes, on the right the Belgian tricolours.

The plate, in French, states that "this plate is dedicated to the soldiers and officers of the 3rd Army of General Patton, and in particular the 35th Infantry Division which conducted terrible combats in this region during the winter of 44-45 to expell the German invader.
May we never forget their sacrifices".

Behind the monument is a destroyed bunker, on which 2 more plates are attached, with on thop of them a golden American helmet.
The plates present the names of the fallen.
