Thanks to your contributions, Sgt. Maj. Robert Blaknit was able to return to Omaha Beach June 6, 2014 where he landed 70 years ago on D-Day with 900 men, many of whom were lost at battle. He now shares his return to Normandy with his daughter Holly Davidson. Blaknit had the opportunity to share his experiences with his daughter, and THAT is what Daughters is all about!

Generations Lest We Forget
Videos documenting experiences from WWII Veterans
 
Generations Lest We Forget is an anthology inspiring hope, a series of personal narratives from ordinary individuals who have lived through extraordinary moments in history. The documentaries feature the incredible journeys and heart-warming stories of those who have survived everything: Ellis Island, the depression, wars, 9/11, the civil rights movement, and those who have simply lived, sharing stories of family dinners, baseball games, and wedding feasts. It is a testament to love, life and our humanity. It not only connects us to our families, but also to each other.

French Students Thank our Veterans

Pictured are French students who surrounded Mr. Blatnik and Mr. Tweed and asked such deep questions. Their questions reflected their understanding of the Allied Invasion,  the significance of the liberation of their country and the price of freedom.
 
It gives us great hope in their generation that they will keep the memory of these men alive and take the flame forward so other generations can enjoy freedom and peace.
 
Below is an email received from the teacher.
 
Hello,
I'm a teacher un France and we have been very lucky to meet you at Coleville sur mer the 4th of june. The children ( and us!) have been really happy to meet you, it's a real chance for the children! The two classes wanted to let you a message, so I write it from them:

I just wanted to say thank you for what you did this year at Normandy. I was able to speak with some of your members as well as meet some of the veterans your members escorted this year, including Robert Turecky and the two gentlemen from the 29th ID. As an active duty service member, I am humbled and honored by their contributions and sacrifices, and I'm in awe of the great things your organization has done to continue and honor their memories. Thank you for being part of arguably the most memorable experience of my life.
