Federal help sought for D-Day Memorial

Supporters of the Bedford County National D-Day Memorial are being asked to push to make the site a U.S. monument.

The memorial, which opened eight years ago, honors the heavy loss of casualties among Bedford soldiers who landed at Omaha Beach in June 1944, reports The News & Advance.

But due to financial troubles, the momument a faces possible closure.

The memorial foundation is asking those concerned to write Gov. Kaine, urging him to convince President Obama to let the National Park Service assume operations of the memorial.

The foundation has provided a sample letter on their Web site.
