Normandy American Cemetery Memorial

The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial stands as a solemn tribute to the valor, sacrifice, and memory of the Allied forces who fought and fell during the D-Day landings and subsequent operations in Normandy during World War II. Situated near the town of Colleville-sur-Mer, overlooking Omaha Beach, this sacred site spans 172 acres of meticulously manicured grounds, dotted with rows of white marble crosses and Stars of David marking the final resting places of over 9,000 American soldiers. The centerpiece of the memorial is the serene Garden of the Missing, adorned with a monumental semicircular colonnade and a bronze statue representing the “Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves.” From its commanding position atop the bluffs, visitors can contemplate the tranquil beauty of the surrounding countryside and the enduring legacy of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. With its profound sense of reverence and remembrance, the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial serves as a poignant reminder of the price of liberty and the enduring bond between France and the United States.
