Omaha beach American Military Cemetery

Visited Normandy today and went to the American Military Cemetery.
It has approximately 9,400 crosses and Stars of David.  About 25,000 Americans were killed during the D Day landings in 1944.
It is a very peaceful place, the beach is beautiful and it is almost impossible to imagine how different it was less than 70 years ago.
