Great post, thanks for sharing. This description too often gets overused in my opinion but Sacred Ground immediately came to mind looking at these photos. Evidence of bravery beyond reproach.

My dad was in the middle of it as he was on that beach. I can't wait to show him these pics and here some stories. These will jog his memory and I will hear stories never told before. He can't hardly get around but his memory is amazing. Thanks for sharing. PM sent.

Good pics and I would love to see Normandy before I leave this planet.

That was the Great Generation!

This is a memorable post. I will probably never get there to see it in person. Thanks for that.

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.

Very cool post. My grandmothers brother was part of the 101st Airborne. He was killed during Operation Market Garden. He was one of the guys who was in the Gliders. I have tried to find information on him but have never been able to find any.
