Normandy, France: Juno Beach – by Clay

While in Normandy, France we had the chance to visit one of the beaches that were so prominent in WWII – codenamed Omaha, Utah, Gold, Juno, and Sword. Being Canadians we chose Juno Beach. We learned more about Canadian troop involvement in the war and how the Allied Forces co-ordinated to fight against Hitler’s grab for world domination. The experience was very interesting and sobering at the same time.
