Well Jim, I love to share pictures with you. I know some of you won't be able to visit so that's a reason for me to share them so you can see how it is/was.

Great Photos Frank :armata_PDT_37: , if I only think about sleeping in those conditions in a hole in the wood, damn what have they endured :pdt: .

 

I was in Bastogne the 12 December, do to the commemoration I was stuck for half an hour near the McAuliffe place finally I got a parking place near the railroad station, my boy and myself had a great day and I was happy to see that the Belgian are still celebrating their liberators.

We saw running tanks, trucks and we could visit the basement where General McAuliffe had his command post.

I've shot a lot of photos to, for those who want can watch them here

On this photos the reenactors gave candy's to the kids and that reminded me on my dad who told me when I was around 6 or 7 that the Gi's always gave them chocolate and chewing gum :14_2_108:

Those were some very cool pics. Man, it sure looked cold that day. It fit, n'est pas? The guys in the vehicles were all bundled up, and the snow on the jeep, etc. It lent a real feel for the period.

WOW ! I was actually surprised when I saw snow in the picture! I've been dealing with hot weather here for so long, I forgot Europe is still in Winter. ::Long day::

 

What an amazing experience, thank you for the pictures!
