A visit to the beaches, cemeteries, and battle sites pays tribute to the acts of bravery our heroes displayed on June 6, 1944. It brings with it a greater understanding and appreciation of the events surrounding that fateful day. Walk in the sand at Utah and Omaha beach to get the vantage point of the liberators when their landing-craft ramps dropped into the surf. Visit enemy bunkers. Stare down the cliffs scaled by the Rangers at Pointe du Hoc. Walk through liberated villages still scarred by the ferocious fighting. Stand on the hallowed ground where “The Bedford Boys” sacrificed all they could as the first wave of invaders at Vierville Draw. Everyone experiences different emotions upon seeing the field of crosses and Stars of David at the American Cemetery, but be assured of this - the memory of your visit will not soon be forgotten.
