A British soldier with the 9th Squadron, Royal engineers, is pinned by an American soldier after successfully completing Operation Airdrop Warrior, May 27. Operation Airdrop Warrior consisted of both American and British soldiers, equipment and aircrafts. American soldiers were trained up on the British low-level parachutes, while British soldiers learned how to properly use the American T-10s. Prior to gearing up, each soldier learned how the other country's equipment was packed, how it operated, and how to use it safely and successfully. The operation is preparation for the 68th anniversary ceremonies of D-Day in Normandy, France.
