D-Day Battle Site

I was lucky enough to see some of the actual D-day landing site and I must say, this one was the most impressive. The Army Rangers scaled 100 foot cliffs to overtake the Germans at this site. It was a stroke of military genius, amazing training and luck, but the Rangers were able to secure this post even with several initial setbacks. Amazing! As a thank-you, 30 acres (the entire site) was giving to the American government, so for about 30 minutes, I got to stand on American soil in France.
