U.S. Army Rangers assigned to the 75th Rangers Regiment prepare to climb the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc, in Cricqueville en Bessin, France, while donning World War II-era uniforms, on June 5, 2019. Rangers scaled the cliff to honor the 135 men killed or wounded from the 2nd and 5th Rangers Battalions while capturing and holding Pointe du Hoc. More than 1,300 U.S. service members, partnered with 950 troops from across Europe and Canada, converged in northwestern France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the World War II Allied invasion of Normandy, commonly known as D-Day. Upwards of 80 ceremonies in 40 French communities in the region will take place between June 1-9, 2019. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Michael McNabb)
