Flames of Memory

As twilight deepens and obscures the Blue Ridge, the Memorial will honor the 4,413 men killed on D-Day. Arranged throughout the National D-Day Memorial, thousands of luminarias will shine in recognition of Overlord’s fallen and in tribute to the ultimate sacrifice each made to relight the lamp of freedom.

Nomad Coffee will be on-site each night with hot drinks to help you stay warm while exploring the event.
