Shared with the museum by photographer Scott C:
'This month I made a trip to France and visited the American Cemetery in Normandy. I photographed the gravestone of Henry W Davis of the 355th Fighter Group because he was from my home state of Connecticut. I found him on your site and wanted to offer this to you'.
