Personal Notes:
Our 2019 tour of France coincided with the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. Our trip was a week after the June 6th commemoration and our tour took Gigi and I to the American cemetery overlooking the Normandy beaches. Over 9,000 Americans are buried there. Everything about our visit was moving and poignant especially when an elderly French woman asked if I was an American then shook my hand and thanked me. I thought of my WWII veteran Dad and Father-in-Law. Each of us was given a rose by our tour guide to place upon a gravestone. I strolled among the rows of Crosses and Stars of David, looking for a Marylander. Finding a few, I searched for their stories on the internet. Just boys, such courage. It was near closing time and we began to leave when Taps was played as the American Flag was lowered. We paused and covered our hearts with our hand. There were no dry eyes.
