The Beaches of Normandy

The site of the invasion was very different than that day.  These days the beaches are very quiet and used for recreational use very much in the summer.  The cemetaries were beautiful.  To know what this area went thru is very moving as well as the effort to regain France to the French.  The people here will never forget even if we do as time goes by.  I found it interesting although it definitely felt very different than how I felt the first time I saw Pearl Harbor when I was 21.  

Omaha Beach 2019,  beautifully preserved with memorials abound.

Paul takes in the view of Omaha from a soldiers perspective.

The bunkers from outside.  They are deteriorating but being kept alive for all to visit and learn about what the war meant.
