"That road to V-E Day was hard and long, and traveled by weary and valiant men. And history will always record where that road began. It began here, with the first footprints on the beaches of Normandy.""
THE YANKS ARE COMING - RETURN PROGRAMS FOR WWII VETERANS
It is the most significant and final tribute to the Greatest Generation; The Greatest Generations Foundation has recreated “THE YANKS ARE COMING” spirit of WORLD WAR II. Over the next three years, The Greatest Generations Foundation will sponsor 750 World War II veterans along with their legacies along the same route our heroes did in Normandy, France to memorialize their stories and find closure as they return to the hallowed grounds where they served and laid to rest those they lost in battle.
Through this pilgrimage back to Normandy, France, we want to inspire future generations of Americans, deepening their appreciation of what the World War II generation accomplished in securing freedom and democracy. Above all, the pilgrimage stands as an essential symbol of American national unity, a timeless reminder of the moral strength and awesome power that can flow when free people are united and bonded together for a common cause.
