This is the second of our two-part series on the 82nd Airborne Division on D Day. If you have not yet heard part one (episode 13), please stop, go back, and listen to that one first.

In part two we hear from our Paratroopers who landed in the small village of Sainte-Mère-Église, Normandy on the night of June 5th, 1944, charged with one of the most important missions in American history. We'll also hear from Maurice Renaud, the son of the village's mayor during the war, about his memories from that day. Finally, historian Ed Ruggero presents some stories of valor and courage from our All American Paratroopers.

D Day is perhaps the most important moment in All American history and in this two-part series we pay tribute to the men who participated in it.

The All American Legacy Podcast is produced by the 82nd Airborne Division Public Affairs Office and hosted by Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, Master Sgt. Dan Bailey, and Sgt. 1st Class Alex Burnett. A new episode on the legacy, culture, and history of the 82nd Airborne Division is released every Tuesday.
