U.S. Army World War II and D-Day veteran, Vincent Speranza, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division paratrooper smiles mid-conversation during the D-Day 75 Commemorative Airborne Operation outside Sainte-Mère-Église, France, June 9, 2019. Speranza fought in the Battle of the Bulge between 1944 and 1945, a battle that would result in the highest casualties of any operation during WWII. Speranza believes in the importance of sharing his story, his piece of history, with others because as he says, and Winston Churchill has similarly said, “Those who are not willing to learn history are doomed to repeat it.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Kristof J.
