Normandy Battlefield Cruise

Told you I’d be doing something different. No local gun store in this city. So, flying all night to get here, I visited the Museum of the Army in Paris. Firearms, sabers, pikes, artillery. If you’re a student of war & combat, it’s a Napoleon sorta afternoon. Then, stopped by the French version of West Point.

Who is your favorite general, and why?

We’re in France w 150 of our closest friends on the Freedom Alliance/ NRA – National Rifle Association of America Normandy riverboat cruise. Bucket List. Video explains tour, & my outfit. When you get the opportunity to cruise military history w Oliver North, it is a good thing. Honored & humbled (I’ll post the vignette) to present an aspect of US military history in Ste Mere Eglise, & photos from my presentation on the ship.
Anyone else been here and have a favorite photo??

What do you say when you’re tasked to give a 5 min vignette about the Battle for St Mere Eglise, with the preeminent military historian of our generation (Oliver North) standing to your left?? Well, not the battle, but something snazzy. Freedom Alliance & NRA – National Rifle Association of America Normandy Cruise. We’d shown our group two videos, they’re headed for a couple hours in The Airborne Museum. I give 5 points of emphasis which folks not familiar w (or having forgot) what we do. The sorta period dress was for fun. Watch til the end as BFF @garysupernaugh does a cool pan skyward to get the memorial of PVT Steele forever hanging by his parachute from the church steeple.
