Command Sgt. Maj. Michael A. Grinston, 1st Inf. Div. senior noncommissioned officer, and a French mayor lay flowers June 6 on the 1st Inf. Div. memorial at Omaha Beach, France. The event helped commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The site rests on an airstrip near Saint-Laurent-Sur-Mer, France, that was one of the first to be operational shortly after the invasion.
