Bravery and Beauty, Point du Hoc, France









A visit to Point du Hoc Monument near Omaha Beach, Normandy, France. It is hard to believe waht happened here in this beautiful spot on the French Coast. It marks the Western end of the Omaha beach sector, it was a point of attack by the United States Army Ranger Assault Group during Operation Overlord in World War II. It is funny to see all the barbed wire that is still there while flowers grow up around the wire.
