Grandpa, what did you do in the war?

« Our Normandy Heroes tour led by Geert on 7 June 2014 exceeded our expectations.  Geert’s research of our father’s movements and actions prior to the tour created many points of personal relevance surrounding the D-Day landing. Geert’s vast knowledge of history and the French countryside is consummate and we were left with unforgettable images and memories of our father’s WWII experiences.  Thank you Geert! »
