One of the highlights of my last trip to France was the three days I spent in Normandy, site of the D-Day invasion. As a professional military guy, this is one of the coolest possible trips because the Normandy campaign had it all – amphibious assaults, airborne drops, tank battles, joint firepower, fighters and bombers, amazing logistic and engineering feats, special operations and much more. I would highly recommend seeing Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge and of course, the American cemetery – still on of the most affecting places I have ever seen. But my favorite part of my trip was Pointe du Hoc.
