Thank you all so much!!

It was the 7th time i went there, and it's always different. This year there were more vehicles and the setup in the forest is one of the best i have ever seen during this event.

And i say it every year, we remember the huge sacrifice the USA has made during this battle and are very thankful they had the balls to do it and eventually free the rest of Europe, (and of course we say thanks to the US efforts as a whole, because the Pacific can't be forgotten).

It is because of the USA i actually exist, if they hadn't intervened in the Pacific or had done so later my dad would have died in a japanese POW camp and i would literally not have existed because he and my mom met after the war.

Since i don't have the money to say thanks in the Pacific, i say my thanks every year in Normandy and Bastogne and i'll keep doing it as long as i can!

Cheers,

Jeff
