      D-Day Memorial Raising Money for Bedford Boys Statue

      Bedford, VA - The National D-Day Memorial hopes to honor the Bedford Boys with a sculpture on the 70th anniversary of the invasion.

      A sculpture called "Homage" will pay tribute to the 19 young men from Bedford who lost their lives on June 6, 1944.

      Sculptor Jim Brothers, who has done other pieces for the memorial, has been commissioned for this piece.

      The memorial hopes to raise $250,000 to be able to dedicate the sculpture next June.
