Utah Beach Monument

The Utah Beach Monument is located at the end of Highway N-13D, approximately three kilometers northeast of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont (Manche), France. This monument commemorates the achievements of  the VII Corps which fought in the liberation of the Cotentin Peninsula from June 6 through July 1, 1944. It consists of a red granite obelisk surrounded by a small, developed park overlooking the historic sand dunes of Utah Beach, one of the two American landing beaches during the Normandy Invasion of June 1944.
