June 6 marks the 75th anniversary of the historic D-Day operation, where 150,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches in Normandy, France, to liberate northwest Europe from German occupation.
The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, will commemorate the event with two days full of special events. Activities will take place on Monday, May 13, and Thursday, June 6.
Depending on the day, you will see paratroop jumps, Air Force flyover, wreath laying, living history re-enactors, WWII-era vehicles, D-Day films and more.
