Raymond S. HOBACK - 29th Division.
Bedford Boys Fallen - Raymond Samuel HOBACK never had a chance to reach 100 years old today. Instead, he sacrified his life for our freedom... Raymond may have made it out of his landing craft, but he never made it to shore. Others recall seeing his body in the water. Bedford also failed to make in on the beach. He was killed by an exploding 88mm shell. Their time in the battle could be measured in minutes... [American D-Day facebookLire plus...

RIP - Robert GIGUERE - Navy.
It is with heavy heart we learn the passing of Mr. Robert GIGUERE, a veteran of D-Day (Normandy)... He was 93... Four days earlier, Giguere rode across the choppy English Channel toward the Normandy coast with the Sixth Naval Beach Battalion. When his carrier grounded on the beach, a Teller mine detonated from beneath and tore through the ship's hull, Killing several soldiers below deck... [American D-Day facebookLire plus...

MACHAN JAMES A
2ND RANGER BN
Allen Machan (He apparently went by Allen) was nephew to my Grandmother Genevieve Geddes. I was told as a child he died at D-Day but they didn't know any more details. His dad is Andrew Machan and mom is Hazel-Mae Machan, nee Goodman. Allen was born in Canada, as was his dad. His mom was born in Iow

LE CIMETIERE AMERICAIN DE NORMANDIE et LE MEMORIAL
Le cimetière occupe le site du cimetière provisoire de St. Laurent, créé par la Première armée des Etats-Unis le 8 juin 1944, qui fut le premier cimetière américain de la Deuxième guerre mondiale sur le sol européen. Il se trouve à l'extrémité nord de la petite route de 800 mètres qui le sépare de la départementale. Sa surface est de 698 m2. Il abrite les tombes de 9 387 soldats américains, pour la plupart tombés pendant le débarquement de juin 1944 et les combats qui l'ont suivi, mettant fin à la guerre. Sur les murs du jardin semi-circulaire à l'est du mémorial, sont gravés les noms de 1 557 Américains qui ont donné leur vie au service de leur pays, mais dont les restes n'ont pu être retrouvés ou identifiés.
