D-Day anniversary vig -- Airborne

An airborne trooper, separated from his unit and fighting by himself, forces a german sniper team to surrender. That silver monopod in his hand represents a US Airborne "cricket".


This Vig is dedicated to all the brave young men who, 65 years ago today, jumped out of their planes or piloted gliders full of men over france and made the normandy invasions possible.
