Oh my Sheldon....I really am at a loss as to what to say.
My Grandfather after who I am named made it across this beach on the second day - eventually blown up in the Black Forest and came home to die from a bad blood transplant as a result of his injuries.
Your pictures just made it perfectly clear to me that I have to go see this for myself.
Thanks brother - awesome pictures and more importantly an awesome Memorial.
Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right.
