USACAPOC(A) remembers D-Day

Capt. Brett Baker, U.S. Army Civil Affairs & Psychological Operations Command (Airborne), pins on U.S. jump wings onto allied forces during a wing exchange on La Fiere during a ceremony in honor of WWII and D-Day events, 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.
