We Remember and Honor Those Who Fought and Died 77 Years Ago on D-Day, June 6, 1944!

Ever Forward

Dear Commons Community,

In 2019,  my wife and I visited France and had the privilege of going to the American D-Day Memorial sites in Normandy – Utah Beach, Point du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Memorial Cemetery where there are more than 9,000 American casualties buried.

Ever Forward is the bronze statue that sits at the entrance to Omaha Beach.  

The Memorial Cemetery is a place of serenity with its thousands of crosses.  At 5:00 pm every evening, taps are played as the American flags are lowered (see video below).

I especially remember my two uncles John and Anthony DeMichele, both of whom were in Normandy in World War II.
