One Year Ago: Paratrooper Camp

EncampmentDay1

 

A year ago I had a tremendous opportunity to join a friend and her colleague for a trip to Normandy, France during the week of the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Re-enactors, veterans and active duty military were everywhere along with relatives and history buffs. There were activities across Normandy. Practically every town held festivities. It was incredible.

I don’t know exactly where I took this picture on my first day in France. It was a paratroop re-enactor camp between Caen and Cherbourg somewhere.
