Soldiers from the 82nd Airborne, met in Normandy, France to participate in a family dinner night. Locals from the town met with the troops to take them home and give them a French dinner. This year marks the 74th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944 – most commonly known as D-Day. An epic multinational amphibious and airborne operation, D-Day forged partnerships and reinforced transatlantic bonds that remain strong today. Overall, U.S. service members from 20 units in Europe and the U.S. will participate in events and ceremonies May 30 – June 7, 2018, in almost 40 locations throughout the Normandy region of France as part of Joint Task Force Normandy 74.
