I chuckled when I read this email from one of my favorite vacation planning sites–http://www.vrbo.com.
“Many battles were won and lost on the way to making the United States the great country it is today. With hundreds of vacation rentals near historic battlefields and sites, VRBO puts you on the frontlines of history. From guided tours of Gettysburg to the World War II memorial in Normandy, France–this is a trip that will go down in history.”
It amused me because as a military family, we’ve visited many battlefields over the years. I even wrote a story about it called “Love is a Battlefield,” which was published in my first book Household Baggage: The Moving Life of a Soldier’s Wife.
VRBO lists some of the premier battlefields. How many have you visited?
