Found this on a search looking for Jeep clubs in France, particularly in Normandy.

I've had reservations for my trip to Europe for the 70th Anniversary celebrations in Normandy for more than 6 months now.

If you are looking for more detailed information on what is scheduled all you need to do a a search, there will be plenty of links come up.

Gonna watch Saving PVT Ryan today and after the first 20 minutes of the film during the landing on Omaha, I will pause the movie and ask myself if I can do as good as those men did...

Some folks will always wonder and ask, "How & Why can men charge into certain death?"...
