$5K for 11 days.

Too much $$ for my taste.

If I was in the military in Europe, I would hit all these places. :)

Band of Bothers? You visit famous annoying siblings?

Was lucky enough to be stationed in Europe for 5 years. Got to jump into Nijmegen on a DZ used by the 508th PIR, and also jumped int St. Mere Eglise on a DZ used by the 505th PIR then took a tour of Normandy. Just tremendous experiences, and the French people there could not have been nicer.

It would be amazing, yes.

I did this tour three years ago. Pricey but high value top to bottom. Quality leaders for each segment

In a heartbeat. Either trip.

Is this based off the HBO show which was based on true events?

Many are recommending it to me. I need to watch it.

We all walk upon sacred ground. Beneath all of us lie the bodies of millions of human beings that fought and died for their ideals.

IMO, you don't need to go anywhere.

That's profound, but you wouldn't want to go to Normandy? Or any of the other places just to look at it?
