About the Cover

Virginia State Bar members at the Midyear Legal Seminar in France last November visited the beaches of Normandy. Among their stops was the American Cemetery and Memorial, where 307 tombstones bear the inscription, “Here rests in honored glory a fallen comrade, known but to God.”  Photo by Sharon D. Nelson
