About Utah Beach Memorial

The Utah Beach Memorial is an American monument in Normandy which commemorates the World War II D-Day Landings. On 6 June 1944, as part of the Allied invasion of German-occupied Normandy known as Operation Overlord, the US 4th Infantry Division, part of the VII Corps, landed on Utah Beach.

Comprised of a granite obelisk, the Utah Beach Memorial is a monument to the achievements of this division and their successful landings.
