Band of Brothers Actors to Reunite in Normandy One Last Time to Recognize 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II. Proceeds Raised to Benefit Non-Profit WWII Foundation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Actors from one of televison’s most popular series ever, Band of Brothers, will gather one final time in Normandy, France in 2015 to recognize the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.

The event in 2014, marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day, was a great success, so the actors have decided to hold one more reunion on June 5,6 and 7, 2015 to mark the major anniversary of the end of the war in Europe in 1945 (May), while also observing the 71st anniversary of the D-Day landings.

The reunion will once again be a fundraiser for the non-profit World War II Foundation and its mission of preserving the stories of the WWII generation. The public is invited.
