Great experience, grateful to be able to see this in person. This was one of a few stops in a tour that we took out of Paris.

A quick stop, but needed to see memorial to the 1st ID at Omaha beach. We stopped here and pondered the accomplishments of this famed division.

This is a very simple, but one of the most dignified and moving monuments on Omaha beach.
It's dedicated to insanely brave 1st US infantrymen who disembarked the vessels with many German obstacles around, both in sea and on the beach and being exposed to open enemy fire like clay pigeons on a shooting range.
Their courage backed by heavy naval fire from the supporting destroyers made them unwilling to stop so they captured the beach till late morning and further a mile inland till the end of the day. The rest is history. Thank you.

There is a parking lot beside the exit of the American Cemetary and it leads to this place. Just follow the path from the carpark towards the ocean. The memorial looks out over Omaha Beach. It is quite large and close to the path. Going further leads you to the memorial for the Fifth Engineer Special Brigade and the WN62. There are seats around the memorial so you are able to take your time and enjoy the view and the silence.

The site, the monument, and what it is for is exceptional. It's a simple walk from a small parking lot and the memorial itself looks over the beach and some rocks below - simply stunning. You can feel the aura that is there and how sacred this site is. A must see if you are in the area and are American (or not).

Seeing the beach where so many brave men gave their lives for the fight against Hitler's domination was very moving. Desolate, exposed to the hidden guns in the bunkers. No where to go, except onward. These men were real heros.

It does involve a short walk from the car park, but located in a beautiful spot above the beach. There are some bunkers nearby to explore. All free of charge.

This is a very good memorial for those very brave men that fought and died during the first assault on this beach.
