Colleville-sur-Mer, Lower Normandy

Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. The cemetery is featured at the beginning and end of 1998 Saving Private Ryan.  Private veteran James Francis Ryan along with his family go to the gravestone of Captain John Miller which is played by Tom Hanks.  The story of Saving Private Ryan is based on the story of the Niland Brothers which are also buried in the cemetery.  The movie references the five Sullivan brothers, who were all killed in the 'Juneau incident', however Captain John Miller and his gravestone are not real.
