Memorial Day

This seems a fitting day to introduce my readers to my upcoming adventure. I'll be travelling to France as part of the Normandy: Sacrifice for Freedom Albert H. Small Student Teacher Institute. I know, that's a mouthful of a name, but it's an awesome, once-in-a-career opportunity to do some research with a student.

The officer you see pictured above is 1st Lt. Edmund Duckworth. An executive officer of E Company, 16th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division, he was killed on June 6, 1944. He is one of thousands upon thousands that we honor this Memorial Day. He is also the focus of the research project that has me travelling to France in just a little over three weeks. I'll be chronicling my journey on
