Vee,

 

You are certainly a busy lady! And clearly have a great passion for WW2 and now I see WW1.

 

Thank you so much for sharing this - I went back and looked up Passchendaele on the map. My knowledge of a lot is weak and WW1 is part of that weakness. My grandfather fought in that War and someday when I have more time I want to study that, and of course, oh so many things....

 

Thank you for sharing that wonderful Museum with all of us!

 

You are certainly a busy lady!

 

 

Jean

But I am passionated about the Second World War and the landing in Normandy and mainly All units of the U.S. Army !!

Vee,

 

How funny - I thought you were retired and your passion was the War. Well I was right about one thing - your passion for the War.

 

Boy do you have a full plate - what energy you must have to keep it all together!

 

It makes your sharing of your time with the men in the Cemetery and all of us, even more appreciated!

 

It would be a great honor to one day meet you in France!

 

Merci Beaucoup!

 

Jean
