These are well exposed and (especially the last) well composed shots. However, I didn't see anything that gave context to the images. If you hadn't written that they were taken at Omaha Beach I never would have known where they were taken. I think when photographing historical sites it's critical to include something that indicates to the observer that the images were taken at the site. For example, at Omaha Beach, wading into the surf and shooting the view that the soldiers saw as they were landing, or shooting from a pillbox, etc.
