Group Photo at D-Day Memorial

Claire And EmilyIt was a full day but very doable from the triangle, triad or Charlotte areas. We first stopped at the Tank Museum in Danville. We had best the exit many times but it is only open limited times. It was a self-guided tour. Each tank or other military equipment had background information. We spent about two hours but part of the group did not go with us to the second part and stayed longer.  Some of our group absolutely loved this museum. I personally would have enjoyed it more with a tour.

????????We grabbed lunch and then headed for the D-Day Memorial. This was the part of the trip I was most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. We first had an hour tour that gave information about life as a solider during WWII and some about the home front. It also touched on the story of the Bedford Boys.  We next had an hour tour of the Memorial. The tour was an excellent. We would have missed so much without it.  The tour was so informative about the memorial, the planning of D-day, what happen that day and more. The guide was great at telling stories of men who fought that day.  It is probably my new favorite Memorial. Be sure to get a tour when you are there and put this on your summer to do list.
