Team Ramstein, I've put all trips on hold for a little while to cover the D-Day events happening right here on Ramstein. Last week I dug up the details, and you can see them again below. On Memorial Day, the C-47 Skytrain named Whiskey 7, which was part
of the D-Day operations in 1944, landed here. I hope you were fortunate enough to witness this piece of history touching down, but if not, you can see it happen for yourself at I was able to see it fl y and sniff around inside when it landed. After getting acquainted with the aircraft I had the rare opportunity to bark with William Prindible and Julian Rice, two World War II veterans. We talked about their experience during the war and what these old dogs think of the Air Force today.
