Prelude to Invasion -
Living History Event and Scout Day
If you have ever been curious about the uniforms, history, tactics, gear, weapons, or morale of U.S. servicemen and the Allies during the turbulent period leading up to D-Day, here is your opportunity to learn more.
There will be a special “Meet the WWII Veterans” station, a period command tent with “Omar Bradley”, and book-signings with authors Bob VandeLinde (Respect: Forgotten Heroes and Korea), Zoe Myers (We Two: A Story of War and Love), and Thomas Carter (Beachhead Normandy: An LCT's Odyssey).
Regular admission fees apply. Tours will be given throughout the day.
*Scouts are encouraged to attend this event and will receive a discounted admission rate as well as the chance to earn a special patch. Pre-registration of Scouts is required. Contact the National D-Day Memorial’s Education Department at (540) 586-3329 for more information.
