Approach from the Sea, Les Braves Monument at Omaha Beach

This monument at Omaha Beach is a stainless steel sculpture about the action of D-Day on June 6, 1944.
In a play on the tale of Paul Revere’s storied ride in 1775, this time we came by land, air and sea and clobbered the enemy. Yes, D-Day was brutal and difficult with a considerable loss of life, but the Allies were victorious and freed the populace from oppression. And while I am sorry so many died, they did not give their lives in vain.
