France - Day 4 - Sept 20

The next day of our France trip was the highlight of the trip for Ted.  It was a visit to the beaches of Normandy.  D-Day was June 6, 1944 and the US forces landed on Omaha beach which is where we visited.  We also visited the American Cemetery.  It is estimated that over 5,000 of 50,000 landed troops perished on Omaha beach.
