Sainte-Mère-Église

In Normandy, the history of Europe and America will forever be intertwined. This stained glass window at Sainte-Mère-Église documents the contributions of the paratroopers who descended on Sainte-Mère-Église as part of the D-Day invasion. At the time, the United States had been at war for 2 1/2 years. Just 11 months later, Germany would surrender unconditionally to the Allies.
