The Invasion of Normandy on D-Day June 6, 1944, was the site of many fierce battles, death, and heroic actions. Thousands of American Soldier’s lost their lives on this day, including our beloved Uncle Matty, and many of his 508th PIR buddies. Monica and I visited the sacred grounds of The American Cemetery at Normandy and the sites of the 508th PIR Drop Zones and battles. It is very emotional to visit these sacred grounds, I believe every American should do it at least once in their lifetime.
