Nice find! Judging from what appears to be the tail of the island in the distance and what I believe to be the concrete fire control center for the twin 127mm guns I place this memorial just behind those Black Beach guns. Obviously most of the sand covering has been removed from the FCC and the second twin gun position is out of frame.

Getting harder to find something new. First picture of this for me that gave away its position.
