France “Ever Forward” Statue Updates

We have placed new name plaques at our statue “Ever Forward” in Vierville, Omaha Beach, France.

The plaques are four times larger, moved the WWII veterans names to the top, added more WWII veteran’s names in memorial, and added more sponsor/veteran names.

The new plaques will be re-dedicated at 4:30 P.M. on 5 June 2019 by a delegation including 116th Foundation board members, 29th Division Association, Inc. representatives and officials from the local communities.

Anyone can contribute to the statue fund. It helps cover maintenance costs and will add interpretive markers to the site in the future.

Naming contributions are handled a little differently, please call the 116th Foundation office or visit to learn more about adding names or make an online contribution.
