    Hi Benoit,
    I cannot help you with this but I have one suggestion.
    Send a Private Message to Von Poop or one of the moderators (their names are in green at the top left of the Portal page) and ask them to change the title of your thread to something like
    "Looking for information on American War dead at Colleville-sur-Mer 1944"
    That way forum members who are interested in this kind of research will see the thread more easily

    Have you tried the American Battle Monuments Commission, web site, but remember that all US casualties that were returned home for family burials will not be shown.
