June 22: Point de Hoc

The final stop today was at Pointe du Hoc. Tim did his briefing on the 2nd Ranger Battalion who scaled the cliffs to help secure the beach, also under heavy artillery fire from the battery above.

The landscape is breathtaking, looking out from the point! Tim kept telling me as we walked along the cliff, how truly lucky we are to have been chosen for this wonderful program! It is definitely a life changing experience for all of us! 

Dr. Long, 
a History professor from George Washington University, is leading the academic aspect of the trip.
