Normandy Battlefield Guide

$1,780 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 25 people in 27 days
Todd Anton, historian, author, and a local teacher in the Snowline Unified School District has been offered an amazing opportunity to fulfill a dream--to become a battlefield guide in Normandy, France during the summertime. The exclusive tour company is “D-Day Memory Tours” (DDMT) and is based in Boca Raton, Florida and also in the Normandy region of France. Anton has been offered a “tryout” to see if he can make the cut and bring history to life for the tour participants. Anton who was a Board of Trustees member for the National World War Il Museum in New Orleans, LA for four years was mentored by renowned historian Stephen E. Ambrose who wrote the classic WWII book “Band of Brothers.” Anton has a Master's degree in WWII Studies and has authored well received books on WWII himself focusing on WWII MLB Baseball and WWII NFL Football. Fox Sports even featured Anton and his WWII stories in a one hour TV special “From the Ballpark to the Battlefield: Baseball and World War II.” Anton and the Tri-Community Kiwanis Club is the host of the annual veterans every year at Serrano High School. Over the last 24 years Anton and his students have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and served thousands of veterans. Anton’s own father served in France and Germany in WWII in the 70th Infantry Division and being able to trace the footsteps of heroes is a very emotional opportunity.

The only problem for Anton is in order to make the tryout; Anton has to get there.  Anything will help. He needs to raise nearly $1,500 by May 15 or he loses his tryout.  If he makes the team, Anton’s wish is to get a group of local High Desert people to join him and the DDMT team for next year’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in Normandy.
