Didn’t the 101st and 82nd do so well on D-Day considering the bad drops they experienced?
Sterling job getting their jobs done on that first day.
A lot of men grew up that night and day and the experience they gained was so necessary in the months to come.
The Germans, what can you say? Allied air power and naval bombardments negated any coordinated counterattack above the regimental level. They held on, but opportunities to exploit the initial weaknesses were lost as time passed.
A great day and hats off to any who were present.
I am sure nightime on the 6th brought relief to many a tired soldier.
