"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.""
BATTLEFIELD RETURN: "THE YANKS ARE COMING"
It is the most significant and final tribute to the World War II Generation; The Greatest Generations Foundation has recreated “THE YANKS ARE COMING” spirit of World War II. Over the coming years, The Greatest Generations Foundation will sponsor an additional 1000 World War II veterans to 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.
