American soldier remembers D-day

An American soldier, no name given, walks in the Colleville American military cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer in western France on Sunday, the eve of the 72nd anniversary of the D-day landing. D-day marked the start of an Allied invasion of Europe, as many thousands of troops began landing on the beaches of Normandy in northern France on June 6, 1944. It was the start of a major offensive against the Nazi German forces, an offensive that cost the lives of many thousands.
