Bedford Boys Tribute Center

Devoted to the young men who served and were killed during the D-Day invasion at Normandy, June 6, 1944. The center is housed in the old Greene's Drug Store, a gathering place for the folks of Bedford during the war. It is filled with personal effects of the men who served, as well as other paraphernalia from the time period. The tour of the center (two rooms, really) brings these young men to life, and serves as a starting place for anyone who plans to visit the National D-Day Memorial down the road.

[Kristopher Yoder, 09/23/2020]

34 of Bedford's young men participated in the D-Day invasions and 23 of them were killed -- the highest percentage of any U.S. town.
