Normandy Graves

The widow of Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., decorates her husband's grave in Normandy. The son of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt led troops onto Utah Beach during the Normandy landings of World War II, but died of a heart attack a month later at age 56. He posthumously received the Medal of Honor. The grave to the left is for his brother, Quentin, who died in combat in France in 1918.
