The Mission

Normandy Allies Inc. perpetuates the memory of Allied accomplishments and sacrifices in World War II, primarily through study trips to Normandy, the newsletter Amiti, and the website
The organization was founded in 1997 to promote greater historical understanding of the 1944 liberation of Normandy and the subsequent reconstruction of France.
Normandy Allies Inc. is an IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, run entirely by volunteers.

What is the International Experience?

An annual journey not for the ordinary tourist but for those who wish to learn in in greater depth about Normandy, past and present.
The days are intensive and rich with meaning as we talk with historians and eyewitnesses.
We go to learn, we return knowing that…

We will never forget…

A pledge for the future rooted in an extraordinary gift of service to the people of the world.
The Allied Forces who landed on the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944 brought liberty to Normandy and changed the world…

…The people of Normandy who after years of occupation and the violence of war rebuilt their land and demonstrated the benefit of shared labor...

… from many nations, people united in a common endeavor yielding uncommon results…

Today our world again calls for this witness to the resilience of the human spirit in its commitment to the common good.
Normandy Allies, working in friendship with military and civil organizations in the United States and France, responds to this call.

The Program

Normandy Allies International Experience creates a learning community for students, teachers, veterans, and other adults. We welcome all who are interested in an opportunity to visit significant sites and spend time with historians and civilians who can deepen the understanding of the Normandy Experience.
Participants will be invited to explore the stories of the ordinary soldiers and civilians caught up in the extraordinary events that signaled the end of World War II. These histories bear witness to the power of a shared goal, the benefits of working for the common good and
the vitality of stretching beyond one’s own limits and expectations in order to serve a common purpose.
