    National D-Day Memorial, Bedford, VA

    Heading to Manassas on Friday night, I passed a sign for the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA. Since it's sort of in the middle of nowhere, and I didn't know when I'd get back by that way, I took a short detour on the way home and stopped in to visit.







    The wall surrounding part of the memorial was filled with these plaques, with the names of US and Allied troops killed in Operation Overlord.







    The plaque accompanying this L-3 observation plane included the comment "If its canvas covering offered scant protection to those in the aircraft, the L-3's ability to fly on as projectiles pass through it was an offsetting advantage..."

    That is a seriously impressive monument. Had no idea it even existed.

    Nice pictures Moose
