Remembering the Boys of Pointe du Hoc
One of the greatest and most moving speeches I have ever heard was given by President Reagan at Pointe du Hoc in Normandy on the 40th anniversary of D Day. Ten years later I took my Dad and some other friends to visit the Normandy cemeteries and beaches and pay our own tribute to those who had died for our freedom. I never thought I would see the day when my father would agree to visit a German cemetery, but he did. And we both shed a tear there too. If you've never been, I can highly recommend the experience. But take plenty of Kleenex with you.
