looking for information about Clinton C. Kwaak
On June 6th 1994, 06.30 a.m. I (Rob) was standing on Omaha Beach, Normandy.
It was a very impressive moment for me. Standing on the exact same place, at the exact same time 50 years later.
On a statue near the Normandy American Cemetery St. Laurent-sur-Mer, I found the name of Clinton C. Kwaak. For no particular reason my attention was drawn to this name.
Since then Clinton C. Kwaak has been the name of the person that more or less represents for me all other men and women who fought those days on these French beaches.
