The Police Activities League (PAL) arranges a trip for WWII veterans to visit Normandy every year. This year they invited us to join them! We feel it is so important to capture true history and share it with future generations. While we were in Normandy we took hours of video footage, including interviews with WWII veterans, and tons of pictures. Please help us share this history by partnering with us to use this footage to make a documentary. Contributions will help us fund the editing process, any additional contributions will be donated to PAL.

"During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe." Read More
