Memorial Day 2012 at Normandy American


This year, AWON member Charlene Czajkowski traveled to Normandy with her son, Pete,
to honor her father, Harold C. Kain, and to present the AWON wreath.


Jean Marc Leseuer, our AWON "Ambassador" in France, and Charlene Czajowski
share a light moment with Major General Aundre Piggee, Commanding General
of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command.
