Normandy Institute: Sacrifice for Freedom – Day 6 – Thursday, June 25

Day 6 – Operation Overlord
Spencer Valenti, Dover High School, Delaware

We woke up feeling extremely excited because we were getting closer to leaving for France. We also got to participate in one more lecture about the operations in Operation Overlord. This lecture covered everything that happened in Overlord. Dr.Long, a professor from George Washington University, understood the subject very well and was able to inform us of all the small details that one would not normally cover. We talked about the tactics used on the beach, we talked about the landing craft used, we talked about the objectives, we talked about it all. It helped to prepare us for our walk on the beaches of Normandy, where we would soon be heading.
