For those of you who have not read the nine page story here it is. If nine pages is too much please take a look at the 400+ pictures found at the end of the story in the gallery section.

Battle of the Bulge

I wanted to do this a couple weeks ago when the Battle started but forgot.

Check out the story and then take a look at over 400 photos including dozens in and around Bastogne, Foy, Noville etc!!

Here I go again

For those of you who are interested in these type of trips let me know, I am actually going on the same tour again in September with a member of the 101st Airborne.
I really hope I can meet up with some of the fine ACG folks who live in England, France, Holland, Germany, Belgium, Austria and more!
I am really excited about driving Hells Highway again, I have done a lot of reading on Market Garden in the last year so it will be fun to see all the bridges again.
Chad
