I took these photographs on November 1, 2006 at the American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, Normandy, France. It is a 172 acre cemetery on the bluff above Omaha Beach. Read my entire story in honor of this date, June 6, 1944 and all of those who lost their lives in battle at Tampa Day Photo. American and Allied troops, sailors and airmen participated on this date in Operation Overlord, the invasion of Europe. Over 9,000 men are buried here.
