Dear General Leszczynski:

In the meeting of 20 April, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the proposed inscriptions and interpretive signs for the new visitor center at the World War II Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. The Commission approved the submission with one recommendation: that the French text on the orientation panel not be italicized, as the members thought that the shift in language would be readily apparent to the reader without introducing a typographic change.

The Commission members commended the work done by your agency and they look forward to the review of other projects for the American Battle Monuments Commission. As always, the Commission staff is available should you require further guidance.
