Remembering the Bedford Boys

 For the 70th anniversary of D-Day in 2014, the National D-Day Memorial would like to dedicate “Homage,” a piece that will honor and recognize the Bedford Boys who served and sacrificed on D-Day, 6 June 1944.  

 We need help to raise the funds needed to purchase and install this important addition to the Memorial.
