Capt. Henry Lifton, 2nd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, walks of the La Fiere drop zone after jumping in honor of D-Day, June 3. Task Force 68, which is made up of paratroopers from U.S., Germany, France, Holland, and United Kingdom, re-enacted the D-Day airborne operation on the La Fiere fields near Ste. Mere Eglise, France, to commemorate the heroic acts of the WWII paratroopers who made the jump 68 years ago. After the jump, the task force marched into the town of Ste. Mere Eglise to the sounds of cheers from the locals. Task Force 68 is in Normandy, France, to commemorate the 68th anniversary of D-Day.
