Here's the wrought iron entry to the memorial cemetery.
A glimpse of the grounds from the entrance. There's a fountain in the foreground, lots of greenery, and in the background, a memorial.
As we walked in we saw some of the rows of crosses off to our left, behind the fountain.
A shot of some water lillies in the pond.
I took lots of pictures of the crosses. They are arranged in such a way as to provide many interesting photo opportunities.
We walked among the graves until we found this grave of a soldier from our home state of North Carolina.
More crosses, stretching far out to the edge of the park.
We continued up the path to the memorial. As you can see by the lawn in front, the grounds were immaculately maintained (which I was glad to see).
Some more crosses, curving outwards.
This picture was taken inside the monument. The walls are covered with the names of the soldiers. This is just one section of one of the walls.
The courtyard inside the monument.
In the middle of the courtyard stood this 3-d map showing the route of the invasion, and subsequent advances by Allied forces.
A shot from the monument, looking out across the lawn towards the entrance.
Still more crosses.
