  • First of all, do not follow Google maps if you're trying to find this monument, as well the 1 US infantry division one and German bunkers. They will take you on a 15 min detour drive. All of these...

  • The carpark to this area is beside the American Cemetary exit. There is only a single path that leads towards the ocean and the memorials, you just have to cross a road. You first pass the memorial for the First Infantry Division. If you keep going then you end up at his memorial. This one has four sides with different writings over black stones. Each side also has a plaque above the engraved stone. There are two benches close to the monument, including one which looks out to the sea. The sea side is also where the Croix du Guerre is displayed. It is quite a nice memorial and really nice views of the beach. There is a path to one side that leads down to the bottom of the memorial into a bunker,
  • Amazing site to see. One can walk down to the beach to see the monument for medict and still see German bunkers in the side of the hill. With a little imagination one can see the challenges the American Allies faces on June 6th 1944.
