    I will be making my first visit to Normandy this August. I put in an application and was selected by the Juno Beach Association to be part of their 2012 Professional Development Tour. Here is the itinerary:

    I am not allowed to leave the continent anymore. My lovely wife is afraid I may stay a little longer than she wishes. LOL

    I would love to take a trip through Italy, following in the footseps of 3 uncles. One DOW, one POW, the other, unscathed.

    Hope you both have a safe and wonderful trip, remember I like pictures, lots and lots of pictures.
