Is the USMC a government operation and the Normandy museums are they private ??

 

I thought the Colleville-Sur-Mer museum is US government property? Not sure about the rest... DMC for instance is probably private? Other museums like the one in Arromanches could be French government property.Not sure.

 

No mannekins in the Colleville-Sur-Mer museum though...
