This ceremony, organized on June 5, 2018 by the Pointe du Hoc Committee, was attended by the American veteran John T. Siewert, a sailor aboard the USS Satterlee destroyer, who participated in the naval fire support of the Ranger attack. Also present were French officials, French and American soldiers (belonging in particular to the 75th Ranger Battalion, heir to the 2nd and 5th Ranger Battalions who participated in the assault of 6 June 1944 at Pointe du Hoc). After the speeches and the meditation, a wreath laying was realized, in which John T. Siewert took part.
