66th Anniversary D-Day

D-Day      6 June 1944
Today marks another anniversary of D-Day, the day that the allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy to begin to take back Europe.   The generation that fought that battle are slowly fading away, leaving only written accounts in their place.

As I've said in the past, we had the opportunity to visit Normandy, France in June several years ago and retraced the steps of those brave troops.   The beaches were quiet that day when we visited unlike the early morning hours in 1944.

I encourage you to include a visit to Normandy should your cruise call in LeHavre, France.
