A Friendship born in War, Carentan students visit Fort Campbell

 

Written by Sgt. 1st Class Katrina Craig
101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The 101st Airborne Division, as we know it today, stems from World War II. Nearly eight decades ago, Nazi forces occupied Carentan, a small city in northern France. The 101st Airborne Division had one mission on June 6th, 1944 – liberate Carentan.

The Battle of Normandy was a week of brutal fighting, during which many U.S. Soldiers were either killed or missing in action. Eventually, 101st troops defeated the Nazis, driving them out of the city. The newly liberated citizens of Carentan developed a swell of thankfulness so deep it formed a bond between the citizens of two cities, a world apart.

French students from Lycee Sivard de Beaulieu High School proudly stand in front of a street sign named after their city, Carentan, March 12, at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The students visited Fort Campbell and 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Soldiers as a part of the “Memory and Gratitude Tour,” which honors the day the 101st Airborne Division liberated Carentan from Nazi-German forces, in 1944.
