A French child smiles for a photo following the conclusion of a ceremony held in honor of all airborne troops and flight crew that served on D-Day in Picauville, France, June 4, 2019. The ceremony’s guest speaker, U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. John B. Williams, United States Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa mobilization assistant to the commander, said how real the memories of D-Day are for families living in Normandy, France, as if it happened yesterday. Williams said it’s very gratifying to know the events that transpired 75 years ago will be remembered well into the future in large part because of the French effort to ensure the memories of D-Day remain eternal.
