Here's to The Heroes Who Never Came Home

France will always have the deepest respect for them. Until the end of my life and after my sons , they will be honoured.







My father was one of the men who landed on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. He was one of the lucky ones, he survived. But he could so easily have been one of the men in one of those graves that you tend.


As his daughter and as an American, I cannot tell you what it means that you honor these men. I thank you.


I see these men is two ways, they are my father's contemporaries. But they were just boys and young men then, and because of their sacrifice that is how they will always remain.


As a mother, I feel a gratitude which is beyond words, that you remember and honor them, these mothers' sons, who died so that others might live.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
