Center of Omaha Beach where US forces landed June 6th 1944
Memorial erected on the 60th anniversary of DDay
The invasion sites and the Cemetery are a sobering experience. The scale of that operation was huge. The landing zone is almost 50 miles wide. Airborne landings were 5 to 8 miles back in. The allied Air Forces blew up Normandy supporting the invasion, and the natives of Normandy still love us. I doubt our country today has the moral fortitude to mount that kind of an effort again.
Thank you to all our men and women who have served our country.
