Today Omaha Beach is a site for rest, relaxation and remembrance. But 70 years ago, on a chilly June morning, almost 7,000 boats hit the beaches and tens of thousands of soldiers began pouring onto the shores. It was Omaha that witnessed the most vicious fighting of World War II. While little physical evidence remains of the battle today, its impact on the lives of so many, and the history of our world, will forever be remembered. Join, Michael Walenta, WGVU General Manager as the WGVU Explorers travel to Normandy and Paris in November, to tour the Memorials of War, and arrive on Omaha Beach on Armistice Day.
