66th Anniversary of operation Husky

That month will mark the 66th anniversary of operation Husky,
the invasion of Sicily.
The paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division had a hard fight for Biazzo Ridge.
[and of course the fight for other targets like:
Niscemi -
Objective X,
the roadcrossing
Objective Y,
Santa Croce Camerina
, and all other places in the area].

Our thanks "Jan Bos" for this information… and to all who served and special thanks to those who did not return… Well done and thank you…
