Memorial Chapel Normandy American Cemetery & Memorial

This chapel was made out of French limestone and its alter of black and gold Pyrenean "Grand Antique" marble contains the following words:

"I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE AND THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH"

The colorful Mosaic ceiling symbolizes the United States which blesses its sons fighting for the freedom and a grateful France, which lays a laurel wreath among the fallen Americans who gave their lives for the liberation of the oppressed Europe.
