Looking for some photos of Omaha Beach, I came across this gallery of photos. Some are difficult to look at (even more so for those of you that were there), but they are photos that show courage, bravery, the absolute horror of war.

I was their deliverying 20 and 40 mm ammo to Dog Green beach so that the 29th Inf Div could fight off of the beach. I was aboard a LCVP off of LST 266 and made 38 trips across the Channel to OMHA EAST&West Utah beach North and South, Gold Juno & Sword

Sea Bat,
Would you please post the Photos, or tell me where you found them?

Click here for the link.

Mr. Norwood... I'm sorry! I posted the message but forgot to paste in the link... thanks for bringing it to my attention! Be sure to go all the way to the bottom of the page. There you will see a 'Photos' tab... it takes you into the gallery.

I really was moved by the photographs.

I had the privilege of going to Omaha Beach in late 2002. It is a most serene and peaceful place. It is hard to image the carnage that took place there in 1944. Overlooking the beach is the famous US Cemetery. The one that is in Saving Private Ryan. It is very touching and emotional to walk through the cemetery with the manicured lawn and Crosses and Star of Davids in perfect alignment. All the people walking through it are very quiet and respectful. It is as powerful a moment at the last scenes in Private Ryan when he returns with his family.
