It isn’t every day, or even every week, that an Airman gets the opportunity to interact with living, breathing history. It’s even rarer when that history is part of a watershed moment that changed the face of the world.
At Ramstein Air Base, Germany, that is exactly what I was privileged to do. I got to interact with men who participated in Operation Overlord, the invasion of Normandy, as well as an aircraft that flew them.
