At the American cemetery in Tunis

In between political interviews I stopped at the American cemetery in Tunis. Surrounded by trees, it contains the graves of more than 2,800 men and 22 women who died in the North African campaign of WW II. I was the only one there.

By chance I came across the grave of Pvt Celia Goldberg, a member of the Women's Army Corps who died aboard ship in Feb. 1944.

I could not stop thinking about this young woman, brave enough to enlist and buried so far from home in this lonely, beautiful place near the sea.
