We arrived in Paris at the end of May on our journey to honor those who perished on the beaches of Normandy. We visited Monet’s home at Giverny; on to World War I; the Maginot Line, the Battle of the Bulge, and finally the Normandy Beaches. The highlight was the June 6, 2019 ceremony at the American Cemetery above Omaha Beach that honored the 135,000 men, with almost 10,000 deaths who engaged in a suicide mission to defeat Nazism.
