The Normandy American Cemetery is above Omaha Beach, one of the four Norman beaches where the Allied forces landed in stormy weather on June 6, 1944. It is a moving experience to visit the beach and the remaining battlements, the museum, and the thousands of graves.
9238 soldiers' graves are marked by white marble crosses and 149 by Stars of David.
It is an emotional sight. I choked back tears at least a dozen times.
