« Travelling on the path that my father took so many years ago was like being there with him in 1944. I would have done the trip without him but it was even more special to be able to go with him. I can truly say that our tour of the Normandy battlefields with Geert was the highlight of my life to this point and a memory that will be with me forever. »Ron Hudnell, son of Ranger James Hudnell
Pfc. James Hudnell served in Company D, 2nd Ranger Battalion on D-Day and later at Brest where he was severly wounded. After the passing of his wife his son Ron, himself a former Ranger, decided it was time to bring his father back to Normandy where he had fought during WWII.
