D-Day came alive in three-D for the lucky few Rotarians and guests who made the trek to Hampton and the Air and Space Museum. Thanks to Chick Robison for arranging this special showing, which covered the Why, What, When Where, and Who of D-Day, including "pop-up book" special information.  How many pill boxes did the Germans build? How far could those guns reach? What was the process the planners went through to decide how to attack? Why did they choose where they did? It's amazing the depth of detail the Allies considered in the operation. This flick was a GREAT idea, Chick! And, as with all our flexible events, it counted as a meeting. Love it!
