Sgt. Shirly Ortiz-Gomez with British Army veteran Royston O’Neill in Tournieres, France
Sgt. Shirly Ortiz-Gomez, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, U.S. Army Europe, smiles as British Army veteran Royston O’Neill signs her patrol cap June 2 in Tournieres, France. O’Neill served as a signalman with the Royal Corps of Signals during WWII. This year marks the 74th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944 -- most commonly known as D-Day. An epic multinational amphibious and airborne operation, D-Day forged partnerships and reinforced transatlantic bonds that remain strong today. Overall, U.S. service members from 20 units in Europe and the U.S. will participate in events and ceremonies May 30-June 7, 2018, in almost 40 locations throughout the Normandy region of France as part of Joint Task Force Normandy 74.
