Day 2 in #Normandy covered all of the emotions. We started the day with a somber visit to The Brittany American Cemetery where our youngest (16) volunteer gave a powerful message.
The veterans then had a chance to walk the beautiful grounds and pay respects to their fallen comrades. We then visited the amazing Mont Saint Michel, where a large group of children and fans were waiting to greet our 29 veterans.
Day 2 in #Normandy continued. After Mont Saint Michel, we went to Carentan where 2 of our veterans received the French Legion Of Honor, the highest order of merit. We then finished the evening off with a beautiful dinner hosted by one of our wonderful sponsors, @michelin at the historic Chateau de Bernaville. Several of our veterans took the stage and wowed us with their stories and wit. What an incredible start to our first Normandy program in 3 years!
