Brian Campbell led his California based army reserve team for parachute and aircraft training in Florida as preparation for the 2021 77th anniversary commemoration of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.

Every year, the local French towns situated along and near the D-Day Landing Beaches come together to coordinate the D-Day Festival, which features commemorative events and festivities on the five D-Day Landing Beaches and in Sainte-Mère-Église, Bayeux and Arromanches-les-Bains (Gold Beach sector) to name but a few places. Participants from dozens of countries around the world converge each year in early June to commemorate the event with a mass parachute drop honoring the American and Allied paratroopers who jumped into Normandy in the early hours of June 6th, 1944.

In preparation for the festival, as explained by Major Campbell, he and his team spent the weekend in Florida with his unit training in and around the WWII C-47 aircraft they will be flying in and parachuting from in early June for the 77th-anniversary commemoration of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.
