Shake Hands with Real Heroes of History!

Opportunity of a Lifetime — June 6 in New Orleans as D-Day Soldiers Testify to God’s Grace!

Code-named Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. We are privileged to have three such veterans and real-life heroes joining us in New Orleans this June! Mr. Herb Griffin will be with us for most of our tour while brothers Ubert and Lampton (L.C.) Terrell join us, Lord willing, for the special D-Day Anniversary dinner Tuesday night at the Stage Door Canteen in the WWII Museum. These remarkable men will share their exciting stories and testify of God’s amazing grace in their lives.

The word ‘heroes’ is thrown around far too often in our society. This tour afforded us the chance to spend time with — not just meet — real heroes. After meeting them it’s impossible to deny that those men, and many others like them, were the reason the allies won the war. Landmark Events put together a terrific package that we will remember forever!”

Herb Griffin

Mr. Griffin is one of many brave American men who stormed Utah Beach on June 6, 1944. The most grateful and cheerful of men, Mr. Griffin is always giving thanks to God for preserving him on that fateful day. Wounded at Saint-Lô in Normandy the following month, he spent his 19th birthday recovering in a London hospital. Today Mr. Griffin lives in Jacksonville, Florida, serving the Lord by giving selflessly of his time and optimism to all those around him.

Ubert and L.C. Terrell

Lampton, “L.C.”, and Ubert Terrell grew up in rural Louisiana. L.C. led a special combat engineering task force of 36 men onto Utah Beach, of which 12 died in the invasion. His older brother, Ubert, now 97, parachuted behind German lines five times, working with the French resistance and gathering intelligence before the D-Day invasion and then flew missions into France as part of the invasion. Of the 35 soldiers in his special task force, only five survived through the war. “That’s the hero of the group,” L.C. said of Ubert. “What I did, it worked out fine. I completed my mission in good style, with losses of course. But this guy, what he did, he had to be extra, extraordinary and skillful in what he did in picking up this information we needed to plan the invasion.”

We are still reeling from the overall experience. We especially enjoyed listening to and having the opportunity to interact with the veterans. Having time set aside to worship with other Christians was also very important to us. The banquet was the icing on the cake.”

Sponsorship Opportunities Available

This trip was a tremendous culmination of a year-long study of WWII for my 14-year-old son. Stories need to be forever told lest we forget what was done for us, and at what price.”

Mr. Terrell thought for a moment, then looked at me and answered resolutely, “Don’t quit,” he said. “When you feel ready to give up, or opportunities seem to have slipped from your grasp, or you are old and tempted to retire from an active, purposeful life, don’t quit.”
