Normandy - the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach

This was a very emotional day. Both my father and my father-in-law were in France during WWII, and both were wounded (my father-in-law very seriously).

We stood in the American Cemetery where almost ten thousand Americans are buried. As Taps was played out on a bugle, there wasn't a dry eye. Our fathers fought and so many lost their lives protecting our country and our allies.

Then we went to Omaha Beach, the site of D-Day.

I am going to try to post more than one picture and. Hope that the Internet won't bite my butt.
