During the airborne operations, over 950 military paratroopers from seven partner countries honored the service members who jumped in the same location 75 years ago while also strengthening the bond with partner nations. More than 1,300 U.S. Service Members, partnered with 950 troops from across Europe and Canada, have converged in northwestern France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the WWII Allied Invasion of Normandy, commonly known as D-Day. Upwards of 80 ceremonies in 40 French communities in the region will take place between June 1-9, 2019. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Emily Houdershieldt)
