I had the opportunity to participate in the 65th anniversary of D-Day trip to Normandy, France with The Greatest Generations Foundation. It was such an amazing experience and an honor to be able to interace and get to know the ten WWII veterans who we accompanied on the trip. It is important that we not forget these veterans who gave so much not only for the country of France but for America as well.

During the summer of 2009, I was given the opportunity to accompany 10 WWII Veterans back to Europe for the 65th anniversary of D-Day. I was one of 20 college students who took part in this trip. Our goal was simple: to be with these veterans and share in their emotions as they revisited places they fought. We students were able to stand and talk with them as they recounted the horros they experienced. No longer do I view veterans simply as men who served in a far away country. I now view them with utmost respect. It was through The Greatest Generations Foundation that this trip was accomplished. TGGF helped bridge the gap beween those WWII veterans and the students who accompanied them. The trip was a success: not only did we share in their experiences; but more importantly, a bond was created between two very different and distant generations.
