“People of Western Europe: A landing was made this morning…”

    “People of Western Europe: A landing was made this morning on the coast of France by troops of the Allied Expeditionary Force.

C-47 That Dropped D-Day Troops Returning to Normandy

GENESEO, N.Y. (AP) — The next time the American military transport plane known as Whiskey 7 drops its paratroopers over Normandy, France, it will be for a commemoration instead of an invasion.
