Yes, just a really great, very historical site to visit. I was able to visit in 1993 and made some similar photos, but I think there are more people in my photos. Are there still the "international" symbols of a foot stepping on a mine to warn you of UXO there? If I remember correctly, inside the FO bunker, there was a bronze Tablet naming the Ranger KIA's on June 6. A recent visitor had added a wooden cross and a hand written and very touching note to his friends who didn't survive the day. I made a photo of it and have it somewhere, very touching. My wife didn't want to visit any more American Cemeteries after visiting the one in Normandy. I guess it might be interesting to note that I deployed for a year as an infantry Master Sergeant to Afghanistan in 2012. My wife wasn't thrilled about it, but did realize it was something I "had" to do! Not too sure my daughter understands why I did that and missed her High School Graduation and 1st year of collage. She probably never will, but, I came home to them pretty much un harmed.
