Caloville Farm (sometime written as Culoville)

Midway from Vierville and Holdy Corner on D 329, Caloville Farm is located in the first cross road from Vierville to Hiéville. This farm was use by Col. Sink as his first CP. Also many paratroopers gather there including Dick Winters and had their first mass on June 6th in the morning. You might remember two important scenes from the miniseries, though only one is real. Sainte-Marie-du-Mont is the town where, at night, Dick Winters looked into the distance and prayed to god to see him through the war and promised to find a peaceful spot to live out the rest of his life. One scene that wasn't true was Dick Winters having a drink while the guys were in the back of the truck. Winters wrote that he had his sip of Calvados (local apple cider) after Brecourt Manor. The D 913 was the strategic town depicted in the eponymous episode of Band of Brothers.
