Bloody Omaha III

Dave stands on Omaha Beach with a few of the many memorials seen in the background. There are almost a dozen monuments for the 1st and 29th Divisions, along with the Provisional and 5th Engineer brigades, Armored units, the 5th Ranger Battalion, the 81st Chemical Mortar Battalion and one for the National Guard. Below is the bluffs where the Normandy American Cemetery is located. Note the American flag flying near the center of the picture. Interred are the remains of 9,387 service personnel along with the names of 1,557 Americans who were never found listed on a semi-circular wall in the Garden of the Missing.
