2nd Brigade Combat Team “STRIKE”
73 years ago in the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, over 1,800 Soldiers of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment jumped into Normandy as part 101st Airborne Division’s Mission Albany. It was the regiment’s first combat operation.
Supporting Operation Overlord, they were tasked with securing two northern causeways leading inland from Utah Beach and destroying a German battery of 122 mm howitzers near Ste Martin-de-Varreville. Dropped throughout the countryside under heavy enemy fire, the paratroopers battled through the night and day securing all of their objectives.
