D-Day Celebration 2006

D-Day Ceremony - 2006 - Seattle, WA

This spring Chuck Fowler and Dan Withers were having coffee discussing the recent new history discovered about the CG-83366 and the light bulb went off in Chucks head. How about a living heritage D-Day celebration that encompasses all of the resources that we can round up with the "anchor tenant" being the 83366 that had actually been at D-Day. Before long a plan was put together that looked a lot like this.

Follow the results of the effort of those that participated below.
