1st ESB Utah Beach Monument in Winter

In December my friend Dave Ashe snapped these photos of the 1st Engineer Special Brigade monument on Utah Beach. The monument was built in 1945 on top of a concrete bunker, which had been part of the Germans' Widerneststand "resistance nest" 5. The sides of the monument lists all the units that were part of the 1st ESB in Normandy (see see previous post). My grandpa remembers donating some of his pay toward building the structure.
