D-Day: Remembering the Fallen
CAMP LEJEUNE, NC, UNITED STATES
On June 6, 2021, we remember those who fought and died during D-Day, the initial invasion that started the Battle of Normandy and resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. The Normandy American Cemetery is the resting place for 9,387 Americans, most of whom gave their lives during the landing operations and in the establishment of the beachhead. The names of 1,557 soldiers are inscribed on tablets in the cemetery’s Garden of the Missing. The remains of approximately 14,000 others originally buried in this region were returned home at the request of their next of kin. U.S. Army Sgt. Robert L. Bearden was one of the soldiers that was able to make it back home. (U.S. Marine Corps video by Lance Cpl. Jacqueline Peguero-Montes)
