DMV National Guard Monument on Bunker

Nat-Guard-Mon-at-Vierville
National Guard Monument

During the summer of 1940. our government ordered the National Guard into service to prepare for World War 2. The 29th Infantry Division of DC, Maryland, and Virginia became one of the two assault divisions tasked with overcoming the German defenders during the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944.
This monument commemorates their actions at Charlie Sector, the westernmost part of Omaha Beach. Today they inspire other National Guard members, one of whom was recently in my home.
He was brought to tears by finally seeing the monument, so I made him a print. It was the least I could do. Our Veterans have done so much for this country, and to them, it was just a chance to do their jobs.
