The National D-Day Memorial was selected this year to join the Bedford National Guard Armory on a list of Wreaths Across America Sites locally. The ceremonial wreaths honor the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, prisoners of war and those missing in action. Since its dedication in June 2001, the memorial has attracted more than 1.3 million visitors. Organizers expect between, 10,000 and15, 000 people to visit Bedford for the 70th anniversary of the Normandy invasion next year. More information is available online at:
