A French boy, dressed in a mock WWII-era uniform displaying the American flag, Canadian flag and an illustrated pin stating “I heart our veterans,” extends his arm waiting to high five one of the many U.S. static-line paratroopers walking by during the D-Day 75 Commemorative Airborne Operation outside of Sainte-Mère-Église, France, June 9, 2019. Next to him, a French girl, extends her hand to give the paratroopers a token of gratitude which says “Thank You,” in four different languages. Thousands of spectators showed up for the multinational commemorative events to witness an airshow and 900 paratroopers descend from the skies into the Iron Mike drop-zone, commemorating D-Day, 75 years ago.
