    That's cool. I need to see if there are any TANKS near Houston. I'd like to see some of those myself. Hell, I'd like to have a tank.

    I have the Willy's emblems on my XJ. I've been meaning to paint the invasion circle around the star on my hood. Great pics.

    Nice pics and a great campout.

    Most people here in the states have no idea what went on in the Ardennes forest towards the end of WWII.

    Man, I would love to see that Tiger tank up close. There are not many specimens left in the world.

    very good educational tour I am sad to see that most of the younger kids in Europe are forgetting about that recent history...
    Thumbsup for reminding everybody about these terrible times...

    Next on your trip my friend will be the Maginot line if not done already and I definitely suggest one of the museum for deportation.... hard to visit with young kids but one in a lifetime experience...

    And since you are in the netherland and dutch people find parts of france attractive enough to go on vacation, if you ever go by Nantua near Lyon, go see the Resistance museum

    My GrandPa has a small section there and I am damn proud of it....

    Good for you Steph. Never let it be forgotten. While I am mostly German, and proud of it, I am not proud of what some crazy people did. My family was disgraced by it and changed their German last name to an English name.
