As you make your way down the American Cemetary 🇺🇸 at Colleville-sur-Mer, it's a feeling and emotional set that is hard to emulate anywhere else in the world. it's quiet, it's peaceful, and it's very moving.
On a cliff from the cemetery, higher above Omaha Beach behind, you pay respect to the 9,388 located here. These veterans paid their price at Omaha and Utah Beach on June 6, as well as the battles that ensued at Carentan, Hell's Corner, and others.
Almost every headstone is engraved with the serviceman’s name, the date of his death, the unit in which he served, and the country where he was conscripted (or volunteered). 307 have no name. It was a long way for these young guys to get killed for the liberation of Europe and the protection of all nation's futures.
We are thankful and will always remember. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸
