WWII Veterans Return to Normandy

$2,791 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 22 people in 20 days
We have 2 WWII Veterans who are 95 & 96 years old. Clinton Riddle is the last surviving member of the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne and Gerald "Andy" Anderson served with the 116th Infantry Regiment of the 1st Infantry Division. Both took part in the greatest invasion the world has seen. Operation Overlord. June 6, 1944, D-Day
Clinton landed behind enemy lines while Gerald Came on shore with the first wave on Bloody Omaha Beach. 
World War 2 Tours of Europe are asking for a small donation to take these 2 heroes of our greatest generation  back to Normandy for the 75th D-Day Ceremonies taking place in Normandy, France on June 5, 6 & 7,  2019. The funds raised will pay for the round trip airfare for the veterans and a member of their family / escort from USA to Paris.
On arrival in Paris, World War 2 Tours will pay all expenses for them while in France. This will probably be the last time that these 2 WWII Veterans can make it over to honor their fallen comrades who lie interned in the Normandy American Military Cemetery in Normandy and to be honored by our nation and the grateful French population. 
Please help us get 2 of our veterans back to Normandy before it is too late. Let us honor them.
