On June 30, 2007, we will join together with thousands of French people on the famous Omaha Beach, in Normandy, France to pay our respect to the fallen American war heroes who came to our rescue.

The participants   formed a human chain of letters and spell out the following words as a huge message

FRANCE WILL NEVER FORGET 

In simple ceremonies at military cemeteries, men, women and children placed a simple red rose at each of the 60,511 graves of U.S. soldiers who died fighting on French soil in the two world wars. The tribute began Thursday at the huge D-Day cemetery in Normandy and continued Friday at smaller burial sites in France.
