RESEARCHERS HELP MICHIGAN WWII VETERAN TO VISIT SITE WHERE FRIEND WAS KILLED IN ACTION

NORMANDY – In November 2019, Ceo Bauer, a former US Army veteran from Ithaca, Michigan, found closure as he returned to the battlefields of Normandy. The trip was made more special for Ceo as Footsteps Researchers helped him to walk in the footsteps of a hometown friend who was killed in action in Normandy on July 14, 1944. ‘For me this is closure. I can die smiling now’, Ceo said on the spot where his friend, Rolland Hill, was killed by artillery shrapnel in the head.
