All good things must come to an end had an amazing time here in France for the 75th anniversary of D-Day what an honor to have been able to sing for WWII veterans and the great people of Normandy this is a celebration I’ll never forget 🇫🇷🇺🇸 Viva La France!
It’s funny how we have to travel half way around the world to appreciate our freedom and show respect to those who served and died for our country. The past week #teamsupertramp had the privilege to spend time with some of the best guys and veterans on the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France. I can confidently say this was one of the best experiences of my entire life, thanks again @zach_carbo @larrynumber9 @chexmachine @combatflipflops for being the humble humans you are.
The first 2 photos are of the French military and police while the 3rd is of the British army. It was lovely so see every branch of the French, British, and US armed forcing in Normandie for D-Day. But also the French were armed to the teeth so it was awesome to be able to see French firearms and thankfully they never had to be used
Soldiers from the @usarmyreserve 90th Sustainment Brigade having fun around the towns of France. These Soldiers are in France for the 75th D-Day Commemoration, but are finding time in between ceremonies to interact with locals and folks in town to share in all the activities. . #dday75#dday @79thtsc
It's been an incredible week here in the Normandy area for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. We have seen so much and the whole experience has been amazing. I am truly humbled to talk with veterans and pay respects to so many who fell. I will never forget this journey. #normandy#shermantank
6 juin 1944 voici 75 ans que ces hommes sont venu nous délivré des nazi. Beaucoup de personnes n'y pense pas mais sans eux ont ne seraient sûrement pas dans un monde comme celui si aujourd'hui... @airbornemuseum_sme @debarquementnormandie
These brave men, who had me blushing, reminded me they are from the greatest generation. I smiled and agreed and thanked them for their service. I felt so honored to talk with these heroes who bravely fought for freedom for their generation and for all future generations. Please teach your children about these pivotal moments in history and of the sacrifices these men made. #dday75

Em 2012 eu visitei a #normandia na França. 🇫🇷 Aluguei um carro e passei por todos os vilarejos, museus e praia do desembarque do #diad. Hoje a data completa 75 anos. Com certeza uma das viagens mais inesquecíveis de toda minha vida. A história, o clima e o peso dos locais que visitei são marcas que vão me acompanhar pra sempre. A guerra é a coisa mais terrível que a humanidade pode promover. Aprender, refletir e falar sobre ela e suas consequências é mais do que essencial. Aqueles que não conhecem o seu passado estão condenados a repeti-lo. ...
This was last year in Normandy, France. @timyackley, my niece @veronicamarie.k and I had driven from Chateauroux all the way north to #normandy overnight, slept in the car, and we saw Saint-Mere-Iglese, Point du Hoc, and drove around #carentan. The history was palpable. Someday we’re going to go back and take the rest of the family. 🇫🇷 Tank with on it.... Seemed like we were meant to find this on D-Day at Sainte-Mere-Eglise.
D-Day (-2) Saint Mere Eglise. Utah landing beach. Carentan. Pointe Du Hoc. Víte, že když se spojenecká vojska vylodila v Normandii, tak pro šifrováni zpráv byli nasazeni indiáni Cherokee? #trip#triptonormandy
