Statues from the D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia

June 6 is the 77th anniversary of the D-Day invasion in Normandy. Bedford, Virginia

The decisive World War II invasion took a horrific toll on Bedford, a town of about 4,000 at the time. Its D-Day losses were among the steepest, proportionally, of any community in America.

Statistics from the Museums’s webpage.

GEN Dwight D. (Ike) Eisenhower was the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces (SCAEF) for Operation ‘Overlord’.

    1. I have been to the D-Day Memorial a few times and knew it was in your neck of the woods. I need to visit the Monument Terrace in Lynchburg sometimes. Thanks for commenting.
