On June 8, 1944, the U.S. First Army established the temporary cemetery, the first American cemetery on European soil in World War II. After the war, the present-day cemetery was established a short distance to the east of the original site. France has granted the United States a special, perpetual concession to the land occupied by the cemetery, free of any charge or any tax. The names of 1,557 Americans who lost their lives in the Normandy campaign but could not be located and/or identified are inscribed on the walls of a semicircular garden at the east side of the memorial. This part consists of a semicircular colonnade with a loggia at each end containing maps and narratives of the military operations. At the center is a 22-foot bronze statue entitled The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves by Donald De Lue. The Memorial faces the United States at its nearest point to the cemetery; a point between Eastport and Lubec, Maine..

I had no idea. What a beautiful visual portrayal of such a solemn topic. Those stars above the statue? Brilliant, meaningful touch.

I did not know this history -- the quote ... realizing that our boys were just young children, makes it all the harder. I read a novel about a young man who was to attack the shore ---- unimaginable. Such a wonderful experience for you

This is beautiful - I know when I visited it was very emotional to thank these men for their sacrifices.
