A Dec. 17 story about a group trying to raise money to build a D-Day monument to the Navy in Normandy, France, should have stated that there is a small plaque on Omaha Beach dedicated to the 6th Naval Beach Battalion for its role in the June 6, 1944, invasion. However, the Normandy Monument Committee for the Naval Order of the United States does not consider the plaque as a monument to the U.S. Navy for the mammoth role the service played in the battle, according to retired Navy Capt. Gregory Streeter.
