Normandy 2014: 70th Anniversary
Posted 17 April 2014 - 01:23 AM
This will be the ideal spot/time for a USMF meet!!!!
I hope to meet some of you there!
I'll be in Normandy from June 2 to 9. On Saturday I'm taking part in the Carentan Liberty March. Anyone else?
Otherwise, I bet that everyone will show up on Omaha Beach at 6:30 on June 6
See you there!

Since it's on the map, I wanted to ask to all the members of the forum. Who is coming this year?
I have not return to Normandy since 1994 for the 50th anniversary.

For those who are willing to come to Normandy for the 70th anniversary of D-Day and cant' find a place to stay, here's the deal:
I've booked a small farmhouse for 4 persons in La Haye du Puits, 15 miles away from Sainte-Mère-Eglise and I will stay there from june 1st to june 8th. I'm gonna stay alone there but did book a bigger place than I need in case a WW2 glider pilot would like to come and would have had a problem to find a place to stay (I focus my research on GP's !). It's not 100% sure yet but it seems like I have no veteran I know that is showing up this year. As a consequence, I will have an extra room in the farmhouse. So, if it can help someone, contact me by private message. Now the sad part : as I want to spend a nice week, I prefer to be alone than to be with a SOB. So, for those who will be interested, please be clean, nice and friendly and accept the conditons.

I know it's very late in the game, but I am considering flying over for the the anniversary. Assuming I am willing to bite the bullet on the expensive plane ticket and can find a place to stay, will I be able to attend the various ceremonies and events. I am guessing many of these are limited to a certain number of people? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Collector5516 there is quite an informative part about visiting Normandy during the 2014 anniversary on the UK Government website.
It states there will be a lot of restrictions around the 6th for most of the Normandy beach area..

Thank you for sharing that link Ewart. Unfortunately, it looks like I waited way too long to consider this trip. From what I've read, it seems that I will not be able to get anywhere near the majority of the ceremonies/commemorations.
