Summary

190604-N-YG104-008 NORMANDY, France (June 04, 2019) On June 6, 1944 American Paratroopers were dropped near Saint-Marie-du-Mont, an area occupied by German soldiers. Thick fog and heavy fire from coastal guns left paratroopers in unknown territory. After a great battle, Saint-Marie-du-Mont was the first community to be liberated on D-Day. This week commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Sarah Villegas)
