Hope so, after almost one year gone! It is a monument at Utah Beach if I understand well the comments of my fellow citizens ......

Google Images makes it very easy to cheat at this, doesn't it? It's the water tower at Hickam Field, Hawaii. It's visible in a number of photos taken during the attack on Pearl Harbor. (I stress I didn't know this and only found the answer with Google Images, so you may not wish to count that.)

You are right ! Water tower at Hickam Field ....
Interesting building as it shows "Art Déco" as well as Mauresque influences .....
Next question yours.

Yes, it is the World War I memorial in Reims, inaugurated (by Petain) in 1930.

As no one has post here a new question since the latest post, I post one. This is probably more in Air Force section, but I guess it is OK to put it here. What are these planes and of which air force?
