Scott, this is a great tribute to those who participated in the Normandy Invasion and gave the War Department something to think about with its practice of grouping soldiers from a samll town into the same platoon.  One hit on a small landing craft by a German 88 or mortor could wipe out thirty boys from the same town or county.

Thanks for keeping this important memorial in our thoughts to the Bedford Boys,  our men and women who served on D-Day,  and in World War II !!!
