“A Warrior Returns”

Normally we highlight photos on Fridays, but this is a special occasion. Today is the 67th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, and this photo was too good to pass up posting today.

Zane Schlemmer, a veteran U.S. Army paratrooper who jumped into northern France as a sergeant with the 82nd Airborne Division, walks in his jump boots down the main street of Sainte Mere Eglise with other World War II veterans during the 67th anniversary of the Allied invasion of France, June 5, 2011. French citizens applaud as he and current paratroopers with the 82nd and other Army units parade past.
