Walking tour of the US Cemetery
In this guided tour, you will visit the American cemetery with a local guide and learn about the history of D-Day, June 6th,1944. The U.S. Cemetery is a place of reverence, remembrance, and peace. This enormous cemetery, laid out in the style of a Latin cross, is the final resting place for the brave men who went to fight for freedom and what was right. It is not only a burial ground for Americans, but also a handful of other nationalities. In addition to the traditional cross to indicate those of Christian Faith, there are also Stars of David to mark the Jewish lives lost.
Even though the story behind each grave is a sad one, the sacrifice of all deserves to be recognized. Some of them are well-known, such as the three Medal of Honor recipients, three generals (including General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.), the two Niland brothers (the basis for the movie “Saving Private Ryan”), and the Ollie Reed father and son duo.
