Still reliving the personal stories told by the troops while perusing the Visitor Center. A very solemn location deserving of your time and attention. When you think of the sacrifices made during the invasion, you really appreciate all the freedom you've been given.

A thoughtful and moving tribute to the thousands of Americans life's list on D-day. A reminder of the great debt we owe those who fight for freedom.

One of the places in Normandy truly worth visiting. The whole area is kept nicely and there is information provided to accompany and explain the grave sites. It is a glorious place to appreciate American lives given in an effort to stop the war and make Europe a better place.

Emotionally striking. It really makes you stop and think about what war really means. What it does to people who died or lived. I'm grateful to have seen such a moving tribute.

Of all the sites I visited in Normandy is was he most beautifully kept, and managed cemetery. A beautiful tribute to those who gave all. A fantastic small museum also provides some great information, all for free. I'm not American but would highly recommend.
