There are thousands of unknown stories resting beneath the 9,387 tombstones of American military dead who lost their lives on D-Day and the days after.

All the headstones line up perfectly whether you are looking horizontally, vertically or cross wise

If you're American, ask the US onsite manager if your children can participate in the 5:15 pm changing of the flags. A real honor.

You can find the Private Ryan's brothers on: Square "F" - Line 15 - Cross 11 & 12. Their real names are Preston & Robert NILAND (and not RYAN).

TAPS is played daily @ 1630. A humbling experience for any human to take in. It's hard not to walk these hallowed grounds and get teary eyed. Visit an unknown and give his gravestone a hug.

Impressive and superclean cemetery. American security is overacted though. Nice view on beaches. Bring warm clothes because of heavy winds.

Leave plenty of time this part of your trip to Normandy. The Memorial is outstanding, and you'll want to enjoy every bit of it.

without words, you can try to imagine how was this massacre but you can't... you can find the memorial of 2 sons of president Roosevelt and the famous time capsule in the end of the road at left hand.

9,387 dead from WWII, 1 dead from WWI (the 2nd Roosevelt's brother). Details like that from Eva Ruttger's tour!

Impressive cemetery! My deepest respect for those brave men who gave their lives for our freedom. The view on Omaha beach is beautiful.
