Project Vigil is a personal remembrance project dedicated to the memory of American soldiers buried in the Normandy American Cemetary and Memorial.  It was started by an 11-year-old boy who wanted to put a face and a story to the names of the crosses.  During the week of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, this boy stood vigil at their graves, and in the cold, rain, and burning June sun, he taught hundreds of visitors about them.

On June 6th, 2014 he wanted to say thank you to the soldiers who fought and died on Omaha beach on D-Day morning 70 years earlier.  This is how he did it.  What an amazing kid.

  1. Outstanding example of dignified patriotism. Gives me hope for the future knowing we have at least one who ‘comprehends’ sacrifice and honors it!

  2. This boy, young man really, is a real inspiration. His parents should be VERY proud of him. I am. Makes you remember what being an American means. Best of luck to you son, we need many more like you. God Bless America

  3. What an inspiration this young man is to all of us! His dignity and courage should remind us all that those qualities are what made America great. Let’s revive them.
