Thanks to the hard work and generosity of 6 high school students, 2 World War II veterans, 95 year old Jacques Michienzi and 96 year old George Chall were able to attend the 75th anniversary of D-Day with their families. I can only imagine how special it was for these men to return to Normandy with their loved ones. What incredible maturity and kindess displayed by these North Carolina high school students. Much respect to them for stepping up and doing something so great.
