Invasion of Southern France (Frejus) event June 2014 - Walt's Daughter - 03-04-2014

Dear Marion:


I am involved with the D-Day in Normandy. On June 6, 1944 I was living at 8 miles from Omaha Beach. I came to USA in 1979. (US citizen) , Since 1984 I host a dinner for the veterans of WWII. I live in Roanoke ,VA because I was on the board of the National D-day Foundation in Bedford. This year we will have a huge celebration for the 70th. Many of the 238th Combat Engineers are present at my dinner for years.


But also I am involved in Fredericksburg, which is a sister city with Fréjus, which was one the cities liberated after the landing on August 15, 1944. We are looking for veterans in order to invite them to a very special evening in Fredericksburg on June 20.


Do you know any veterans of your outfit who are living the area of Fredericksburg and who will be interested to come. We are expecting visitors from Frejus.

Please don't hesitate to call me or email me if you have any questions.


Best personal regards





D-Day - 70th Anniversary - 1944 / 2014

The Veterans I know landed D Day Utah Beach and a couple of them are trying to get to France for the celebration. The others do not live close enough to attend. I will stay alert to see if someone could attend their gathering. It is wonderful that they are doing this!!!
