Behind the monument is a cannon, surrounded by flagpoles and tourists.
This memorial is to the naval units that participated in the Utah Beach landing. In the background, there is an American tank on the left and the Café Roosevelt (named after General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.) to the right.
Here's the tank, with another cannon in the background. The grayish blur near the front end of the tracks is most likely the result of a raindrop on my camera lens.
Inside the Café Roosevelt were these war-era radios.
