6.) Bedford, Virginia

The losses in WWII were enormous and not a single soul can be allowed to be forgotten, but this small town in Virginia took a massive hit. Bedford, Virginia is home to the national D-Day memorial and they earned this honor through the valiant actions and sacrifice of its residents. At the time it had a population of only a meager 7,000 and 30 residents were deployed to the beaches of Normandy. The group was well known, they were the “Bedford Boys”. 19 out of the 30 would perish in combat at the hands of the Germans, for their sacrifice the memorial was built in their hometown.
