My father was the youngest of four boys from Dayton, Ohio. They lived through the Great Depression with little to call their own, but they had what they needed.

Written by Sgt. 1st Class Katrina Craig
Fort 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.
