This is the story of Donald H.Weisel buried on the American Cemetery and Memorial in Normandy, France (just behind Omaha Beach, looking over the landing beaches).

This remarkable story was sent to me by Gregg Heilman. Donald was the uncle of Gregg.

Jaap Vermeer (my friend from the SGLO) made the connection between Gregg and Back to Normandy by sending the pictures of a Dutch group (reenactment) paying their respect to Donald and Gregg. 

You can visit Donald's H. Weisel's grave at Plot J, Row 6, Grave 5, 14710 Colleville-sur-Mer, France. If you feel like it, please add your respect at the end of this article.

Cemetery from the air. 

Sincerly yours, Fred Vogels
