Location and info

Ever Forward 29th Division statue, 14710 Vierville-sur-Mer

On the main D517 beach road at the western end of Omaha Beach. Park to the left of the jetty.

"Twenty-nine, let's go!"

The ‘Ever Forward’ statue was created to remember the soldiers of the US 29th Division’s 116th Infantry Regimental Combat Team - the Blue and Gray - who were the first wave of troops ashore on this section of Omaha Beach on D-Day June 6, 1944.
It shows their strength in adversity, their resilience, and sheer determination to get the job done against all the odds.
