Not Your Average Day at the Beach

If you're looking for something to do this weekend, my hometown of Conneaut, Ohio is a good place to start. Each year on the shores of Lake Erie, thousands gather to watch as re-enactors storm Omaha Beach, reenacting the Allied landing in Normandy on June 6, 1944, which begins today with a variety of events, including displays of war memorabilia, concerts, and a meet and greet with Veterans and re-enactors. The reenactment culminates on Saturday with the historical storming of Omaha Beach. This is a great opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices made by the men and women in the Armed Forces. Take a look at a few action shots from the 2009. God Bless America!
