Of the thousands of U.S. and allied troops that took part in D-Day, two 82nd Airborne paratroopers were in France last June for the D-Day anniversary.

The two ― George Schenkle and Joseph Morettini ― were interviewed in France in June 2017 by the Army (the video, by Staff Sgt. James Walker, was posted to DVIDS on Jan. 25, 2018).
