A special guest on this year's tour... Major General Wesley "Wes" Craig - Former Commander, 28th Infantry Division and Former Adjutant General, PA National Guard.
Along with following the footsteps of the Men of Easy Company, the tour will include a special tour of Luxembourg, which was liberated by the PA National Guard during the Battle of the Bulge.
In addition to maintaining the permanent exhibit of military memorabilia and replicated home office of Major Dick Winters, the Society offers an exclusive European itinerary to follow in the footsteps of the Easy company commander.
Major Dick Winters' WWII military service was chronicled by acclaimed author and historian Stephen Ambrose in his book "Band of Brothers." HBO created a ten part mini-series based on the book, and the series became an instant classic. We've studied the episodes, and the personal documentary of Major Winters, to locate places... Brecourt Manor, the foxholes of Jack's Woods, the drop-zone near Zon, Schoonderlogt and Berchtesgaden. Our relationships with colleagues and friends in Europe help make our itinerary unique and exceptional.
Omaha Beach & American Cemetery, Utah Beach Brecourt Manor, Angoville au Plain, Iron Mike Statue at La Fiere, Winters Leadership Memorial, Schoonderlogt, Bomb craters at Pointe du Hoc, Foxholes in Jack's Woods, Mardasson Monument, 101st HQ in Bastogne, Patton's Gravesite, Dachau, Eagle's Nest
Join us for "the trip of a lifetime."
