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 land but haven't had a chance to get on board yet, though I'm told I will be soon. I guess I will throw my human a bone and take her with me. I'm scratching at the door for a chance to tour the C-47 and meet the veterans. I'm so  excited my nub won't stop wagging. I hope you all get a chance to get out to all of these events. Maybe I'll see you there!

· Last Day! Public viewing of the C-47 on Ramp 2-5 by the 37th Airlift Squadron, today from 1 to 4 p.m.

· World War II veterans William Prindible and Julian Rice will visit Ramstein to share their experiences during Operation Overlord with everyone at 10 a.m. Monday in the Hercules Theater.
