WNT Meets Real Life Heroes in Normandy

While in Normandy, France ahead of their matchup vs. France, members of the U.S. Women's National Team took advantage of a day off to take a trip to Omaha Beach - site of the Battle of Normandy and D-Day on June 6, 1944. There, they met Steve Melnikoff, Frank Devita, Greg Melikian and Pete Du Pre, four WWII veterans in their 90s who valiantly shared their stories, some laughs and also quite a few tears. It was a day of learning, of love and one full of pride. These heroes are part of an organization named The Greatest Generations Foundation, which is spearheaded by its founder Timothy Davis.
