Those are some awesome pics, I have been trying to talk the wife into it for years to make it to Normandy, but she is scared to death of flying over the ocean, she has no problem with flying, but NO-NO over the ocean.
Ive done it so many times heading to and from Iraq, and Germany while i was in the US Army.
Thanks for sharing the pics.

Two graves in particular moved me to tears! One of 16 year old Private J. Banks of the Durham Light Infantry. And 30 year old Sergeant V.R. Martlew of the Durham Light Infantry. The bottom of the grave was enscribed with a little verse that really hit me hard...
His life a beautiful memory,
His death a silent grief,
Thy will be done
