International Paratroopers Land In Normandy France On The 70th Anniversary Of D-Day

In the above Defense Department released photo a U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft drops U.S. and international paratroopers to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France on June 8, 2014. More than 700 paratroopers from the United States, France, Germany, England and the Netherlands re-enacted the historic airdrop over the town of Chef-du-Pont, France.
In the above Defense Department released photo thousands of people photograph U.S. and international paratroopers as they land in the Normandy region of France on June 8, 2014.

Note: Since June 6th, the 70th anniversary of D-Day, I've been watching Band of Brothers on HBO On Demand. I saw the series when it originally aired in 2001 and I'm enjoying watching it again.
