The Blue Ridge Mountains can be seen behind a sculpture titled ‘Final Tribute’ at the National D-Day Memorial, Bedford, Virginia. The memorial was dedicated in 2001 honoring American GIs who participated in the invasion of France at Normandy on June 6, 1944, during World War II. Bedford, Virginia was chosen for the memorial site because the town lost 19 of its men that day, all were members of Company A, 29th Infantry Division. (Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images)
