The Normandy Build Up 2021 !!!

Post by 70th Division » Sun Jun 06, 2021 10:30 am

Hello Everyone,

My friend and fellow G member ThierryB sent me these pictures from their 2021 Normandy Expedition .

The French have held an outstanding commemoration this year to honor and remember all the Veterans who landed on this day on June 6th, 1944.
We should have an Official "Normandy D-Day Invasion Month" here in America to commemorate this epic event !!

Here are some pictures of the GMCs in action in Normandy.
A great time was had by all in attendance !!

St. Mere-Eglise above, note the Paratrooper on the steeple ,
John Steele was the original one !

What a Great gathering with perfect weather today, a little rain the last few days there.

The GMC trucks are well restored and beautiful !!!
They drove 2 GMC trucks and a Dodge from Paris, 250 kms one way, on a 500 km round trip !
What a way to travel across the beautiful French countryside.

Vive la France !!!!

Best Regards,
Ray

Hello,

And today to honor the D-Day Anniversary, I mounted my leather M1 scabbard on the 1942 GPW.
