    Sounds like a great visit at the original SS Baracks meeting with the French military. I thought the SS Barracks got totally destroyed during the RAF bombing raid in Operation Bulbasket. Was your father involved with this raid? Refer I know the Americans built some major bases there between early 1950's to late 1960's until de Gaulle demanded the Americans leave. Also did you get to visit the Oradour-sur-Glane village in the area? Look forward to seeing the photographs. Great itinerary!!
