    Default NORMANDY











    Made a trip to Normandy to pay my respects and stopped by a museum, The D Day Academy, where they had hands on functional weapons from the period. Great place!

    Tim -- It was impressive. The cliff the Rangers climbed would scare me to death even if no one was shooting at me!

    Here's a MG42. I've got a real slow connection so more pics will be coming.

    Winn - looks like you had a good trip. Did you visit any other places in France or Europe? General Patton's grave is in Luxembourg.

    sniper I think he might still be over there? He said he had a slow connection on his whatever. He is the richest guy on this forum next to Bluejack. Only way for a slow connection for him would be on the road.

    Understandable. Just figured I would ask.
    Winn,
    If you want, I can offer up some good places to visit in Europe.

    Awesome pics Winn. Wonderful to be able to pay tribute in the actual spot with some of the actual heros of the The Longest Day. Been to Holland and Belgium when I was young. Too young to appreciate it. I wish I could go to those same places, and more, now that I appreciate it.

    4th - I know some people in France, but they don't live in Normandy. As for calling, the country code for France is 33 and I think the area code is 235. So you would dial 011 then 33 then 235 then the phone number.
