Over 950 military paratroopers from seven countries participate in a commemorative airborne operation. This operation is an opportunity for multinational forces to honor the past and simultaneously work to secure the future. 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 Markus Rauchenberger)
