Clip: Normandy, France: Remembering D-Day

On June 6, 2014, Normandy will mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings and there will be huge D-Day commemorations around this date. It was on Normandy's beautiful beaches at the crack of dawn June 6, 1944, that the allies finally gained a foot-hold in France and Nazi Europe began to crumble. In this video Rick travels along Normandy's 75 miles of Atlantic coast sharing memories of the largest military operation in history. (3 min)
