A comment by cannon on We owe you

Thank you for posting the Normandy photos. My wife and I recall most of these scenes when we visited the area during a 1975 camping trip with our infant son, who now commands an Infantry company. It's interesting to recall how back then, French locals became more friendly (to this young American Army family) the closer we came to Normandy. A similar effect was observable during those days as we travelled closer to the (former) Inter-German Border, for which my unit at that time (the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment) had the patrolling responsibility. The Germans in that area were very grateful for the Americans' presence--keeping the "Godless Communist Hordes" in their place to the East.
