The sculptor Anilore Banon had his own words for this Memorial…

“I created this sculpture to honor the courage of these men:
Sons, husbands and fathers, who endangered and often sacrificed their lives in the hope of freeing the French people.”

On June 6th, 1944 American Soldiers sacrificed their lives to liberate France and this beach turned into Bloody Omaha.

A heartfelt thank you to all soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

  1. Tha ks for sharing these photos. I still remember the day and the thankful feeling of taking the offense to the Nazis, yet the dismay of the lost of allies life. I think about that day as we heard it on the radio and the weekend news at the theater. 😱😊😢
