"The memories of war flooded back in as if they had been written in my mind in gold. It brought me such peace to return to Italy after all these years and honor the men that never made it home. Thank you to everyone who helped me return. It was a fantastic trip. I’m truly appreciative."
Charlie Henderson - 449th Gasoline Supply Co.
"It brought back a lot of memories, a lot more than I was used to. It brought me back to how close I was with my comrades. And it was very encouraging to remember them. I always wanted to come back to Belgium and this is my complete wish since 70 years ago."
Vince Rowell - 29th Infantry Div., Second Wave on Omaha Beach
"This trip back to Normandy changed my life. Before I was barely even able to talk about the war. Now I see my small role mattered in a big war. I am now speaking at schools and civic organizations, telling my story."
