George Patton, a boy holding game ball and Command Sgt. Maj. Thomas Conn, Command Sgt. Maj. of of 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st, pose during the Remembrance Bowl 2019 at Saint-Hilaire-Petiteville, Corentan, Normandie, France, June 3, 2019. The Remembrance Bowl, hosted by Helen Patton, is an initiative to commemorate the Champagne Bowl, a football game organized by 101st Airborne Division “Screaming Eagles” on December 25, 1944. However, the game was cancelled prior to the event to respond to adversary advances, which lead to the 101st to participation in the Battle of the Bulge. More than 1,300 U.S. Service Members, partnered with 950 troops from across Europe and Canada, have converged in northwestern France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the WWII 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, the apex being held June 6th at the American Cemetery at Coleville sur Mer.
