When we found out that Lucas's school wasn't teaching WWII, we were shocked. We are trying to fill in some of the gaps, and he was excited to visit the WWII sites.
We went to a WWII museum that was small, overly crowded, and the employees forgot about us so we didn't get to see the film. (Also, there was a tour guide there whose voice was seriously out of this world. She sounded like she was trying to talk like an animated child character. And she was armed with a mic.) Still, I thought it had some cool stuff:
|sewing kit and other necessities given to soldiers|
|I love these messages written to the Navy.|
|a cartographer's knapsack|
|tiny models of the invasion of Normandy|
|This diver's suit was unbelievably large and heavy-looking. I cannot imagine having to wear it!|
I love that the remains of the Allies' floating harbors are still there. It is incredible to see part of what was constructed to facilitate the D-Day invasion, and the fact that part of it remains makes it all so real.
