LES FLEURS DE LA MÉMOIRE
On June 6th, 1944 the allied troops landed in Normandy.
So marking the beginning of the liberation of Europe with the Nazi yoke.
Never let us forget the thousands of soldiers who rest on our ground for our Freedom

At the foot of each cross, a soldier lies, and this soldier has its own history.

One of your family members, a friend is buried in one of the two American Cemeteries in Normandy :

- Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer.
- Brittany American Cemetery in Saint-James.


It's likely a member of Les Fleurs de la Mémoire pays tribute to him laying a flower on his grave at least once a year.

If you would like to know if he has been adopted, please contact :

- president@lesfleursdelamemoire.com
- secretaire@lesfleursdelamemoire.com


We guarantee a response.
Regards.

The President.
