While everyone else was getting their tan on a beach somewhere, I had the biggest honor of meeting the most incredible people in Japan. It was beyond a class trip, it was historic.
Our coach picked us up at eight o’clock and we started the day that I felt was the true purpose of this trip. At the Pointe du Hoc, the ground was completely covered in bomb craters preserved from WWII, now covered in a thick sheet of grass from the decades that have passed. Several fortifications the Nazis used to defend themselves were still preserved.
