U.S. Navy D-Day monument.

* The Naval Order of the United States is leading a campaign to erect a monument to commemorate the Navy's participation in the June 6, 1944, invasion of France during World War II. Although all other U.S. armed services and those of participating allies are memorialized at Normandy, the U.S. Navy is not. The monument will stand near the Utah Beach Landing Museum on the Normandy Coast. The monument will be entirely privately financed, with no government funding. Visit the Naval Order's Web site at www. navalorder.org for more information.
