Day 2: Friday June 5th!
Very Interesting Day 2 in Normandy! After breakfast we visited the new D-Day Experience at Saint-Côme-du-Mont. I can tell, this is the best museum I’ve seen so far in my life. The story of the paratroopers really comes alive in a huge hangar. The quality of the items is amazing and the displays do their job perfectly! Ian Gardner, writer of Tonight We Die As Man, wrote all the English captions for the displays together with Michael DeTrez. I think he did a really good job by telling a story through the eyes of Col. Wolverton in an attention grabbing and immersive way. Besides the items there was a C47 flight simulator which was used on the set of Band of Brothers! All I´ll for say for now is that I really had to think about Lt. Meehan. Videos will be up as soon as I get back in The Netherlands. For now there´s only pictures on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/joedemadioyt/posts/824065501002494
