    My Facebook acquaintance, Claudio Von Planta, has uploaded a series of videos, where two D-Day veterans return to Normandy.
    You can watch one of the videos here, the rest of the videos is on the links in the text here:

    Thanks Maria. I watched a show 2 weeks ago very similar about US troopsers coming back and getting wined and dined by the locals and then standing on the beach, speechless, unable to grasp how this peaceful area was so violent 65 years ago.
