This statue and the surroundings are located in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. It was featured in the opening and closing sequences of the film "Saving Private Ryan, by Stephen Spielberg. Where Private Ryan's character visits the grave of Captain John T. Miller of the 2nd Ranger Battalion. In actual fact no-one of that name is actually buried here. But two of the Nilland brothers are, which the story of the film is based upon.
