USACAPOC(A) remembers D-Day

Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Jacobs, U.S. Army Civil Affiars & Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) commanding general, shakes hands with WWII and D-Day veteran, John Perozzi, 82nd Airborne Division, after a ceremony honoring him and other WWII veterans, 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.
