  9. I apologize for this post being late and out of place, I am today on page 24 playing catchup, but I wanted to relate for what its worth a personal experience from visiting Omaha Beach for the 55th anniversary of the landings on June 6 1999. At the time I was living and working in London, England. My son's Boy Scout Troop, and many other from all over Europe, drove to Normandy and spent a couple days there for this anniversary. Our bus took us to Pointe du Hoc- the gun emplacement is still there today as are the trenches and the whole area is pockmarked with bomb and shell craters. not much has changed i guess. There is a monument to Gen Earl Rudder commemorating the Rangers assault (Gig'em Ags!!!). After this our bus took us a few miles to the east where we all walked to the southern edge of Omaha Beach, along the beach, up the cliffs to the American Cemetary located there (remember the scenes from Saving Private Ryan at this cemetary?) All the Scouts from all over Europe ringed the central area as the US Ambassador and other dignitaries made presentations. Afterwards each scout was given a flag and the name of an American soldier, he had to find that soldier and place the flag on his grave.... Words escape me in an attempt to describe this..... Walking along the sandy beaches that day and climbing the cliffs, those brave men who stormed the beaches and climbed those cliffs deserve our eternal gratitude. it must have been sheer hell......
  10. bump so i can find this easier.....about halfway thru. this narrative is great....
