Jordan Brown is a 13-year-old World War II buff who embarked upon a campaign to ensure that the WWII vets who served on D-Day are memorialized. This blog follows his journey to Normandy, France to watch the unveiling of the Major Dick Winters monument that he helped raise money to fund.
I just thought I'd let you know that CBS News will have some coverage about the dedication on June 6th! Make sure you check it out. Unless some other news event happens that day, their coverage should be sometime around 8:30 in the morning on "CBS This Morning" which airs from 7 - 9 am on the East Coast.
CBS & I filmed for about 3 hours, but I'll only be on for maybe 20 seconds! They will also be interviewing Easy Company vets "Wild" Bill and Babe Heffron and also covering dedication.
And of course, my cat, Oreo, being the way she is decided she wanted to be part of the intervew, so she was on my lap and at the end of the interview came up to the camera to make sure she was featured also. It was really funny and I wonder if they'll show any of that on TV. Here's a picture for you to enjoy!
Tomorrow afternoon I go to the Philly airport to leave for France. Even though I know very little French I will be practicing for a little on the plane. I'm excited for tomorrow but I'm going to miss my friends. Soon I will be telling you about what I've learned and what I'm doing.
Bye - Jordan
