U.S., allied forces remember D-Day sacrifices in Picauville

With her peers watching, a young French girl places a remembrance candle adjacent to the Troop Carrier Command Memorial June 1, 2012, in Picauville, France during a ceremony honoring U.S. Airmen and soldiers killed during the D-Day invasion. U.S. and allied forces attended the commemorative ceremony in the Picauville town square honoring the Airmen and soldiers who lost their lives when their C-47 Skytrain aircraft were brought down by German anti-aircraft artillery at 1:20 a.m., June 6, 1944 as part of the famous Normandy invasion. Members of the Air Force Reserve Command's 302nd, 910th and 440th Airlift Wings took part in this year's 68th Anniversary commemoration of the historic invasion. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
