The memorial on this stone standing on the sand of Omaha Beach is to the Combat Medics of the 1st Infantry Division.
It was here that SSGT Arnold ‘Ray’ Lambert set up the first casualty collection point on Omaha during the D-Day landings on the morning of June 6 1944.
These men placed their lives on the line to save their comrades and their professionalism and dedication gave their units the confidence to prevail in the face of extraordinary danger.
