Robert G. Cole memorial

This memorial honouring Congressional Medal of Honor winner Lt. Col. Robert G. Cole is located on the north side of Carentan, France (west side of the D971 traffic circle). There is no text other than the title on the bottom.

Continue another 230 metres south-west on the D971 to reach Cole's headquarters on the east side of the road. There is a plaque with some details there.
