This pier is located near the small town of Vierville-sur-Mer and is at the west end of Omaha Beach. Just to the right of the pier is where elements of the US Army 5 Corps landed on D Day.
This is where 1st Lieutenant Jimmie W. Monteith Jr is honored in the American Cemetery. The lieutenant is one of three medal of honor winners interned in this remarkable and moving place. The other two are Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr and T/Sgt Frank Peregory.
