68 Years since D-Day

US paratroopers jump over France to mark the anniversary of D-Day (from the EUCOM YouTube channel)

Now imagine you're being shot at as well.

The paratroopers played a vital role in D-Day, protecting the eastern flank of the invasion. It's also worth remembering that this was just the start of an epic slog across France and the Low Countries to Germany.

May they never be forgotten.
