I arranged a private tour of the American cemetery at Normandy to pay my respects at the gravesite of my uncle who is buried there. He died as part of the American D-Day liberation forces. I had preordered a wreath to lay at his grave and it was waiting for me when I arrived on April 1, 2014. The staff at the visitor center were very respectful and courteous. They had an extensive brochure for me to have. I was able to view the raising of the US flags before visiting my uncle's grave. I was allowed to place photos of him and family members on the wreath during the picture taking. I was given the American and French flags that decorated the wreath as mementos to take home with me. The visit was handled with dignity and honor and I was able to stay as long as I wanted.
