Picauville hosts D-Day remembrance ceremony
French children release balloons into the air during a D-Day remembrance ceremony at the United States Army Air Forces Transport Memorial in Picauville, France, June 1, 2017. Each balloon had a placard tied to it with the name of a fallen service member who gave their life for the liberation of France. This event commemorates the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, the largest multinational amphibious landing and operational military airdrop in history, and highlights the U.S.' steadfast commitment to European allies and partners. Overall, approximately 400 U.S. service members from units in Europe and the U.S. participated in ceremonial D-Day 73 events from May 31-June 7, 2017.
