Soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division, along with many onlookers, honor those of the 467th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons Battalion, June 6, 2014, during a memorial commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The ceremony took place on a German pillbox where the monument was dedicated in 1994. The battalion suffered many casualties as its troops systematically neutralized the German bunkers defending the beach. Their actions gave the 1st Infantry Division relief as they continued to storm their objectives.
