The C-47 fleet carrying the paratroopers across the English Channel flew into a barrage of anti-aircraft fire. Many of the planes carrying the 101st Airborne Division were flying too fast and too low when the jump light went green, signaling to the paratroopers that it was time to leap into the night. Out the door and thrust towards the back of the plane, the blast of the parachute opening jerked the paratroopers into their descent, a descent in a sky full of exploding flak and tracer fire. Many would be killed before they touched the ground. Those that lived through the jump still had to survive the night. The invasion depended on them. On the 75th Anniversary of the Normandy Invasion, remember what those brave soldiers accomplished with this commemorative print.
