Episode 22 -- Sanctuary l A Commemoration of D Day The All American Division formed in Georgia, reformed in Louisiana and is now headquartered in North Carolina. But the All American Legacy really started in Sainte-Mère-Église, the town we liberated on D Day. It was this town, popularized in the movie "The Longest Day," that introduced the 82nd Airborne Division to the imagination of the western world. Sainte-Mère-Église was merely a point on a map for our Paratroopers on the night of June 5th, 1944. Today, the town of Holy Mother Church is sanctuary for the 82nd Airborne Division, a place dedicated to preserving the memory of an extraordinary moment. In episode 22 of the All American Legacy podcast, released on the 73th anniversary of D Day, we visit this revered site and speak with World War II Paratroopers and the citizens who witnessed history here. The All American Legacy Podcast is produced by the 82nd Airborne Division public affairs office and tells the story of the 100-year history of our Nation's most honored combat unit. We encourage listeners to leave a rating and a review of our podcast on iTunes; these things help other listeners find the program.
