I keep reading and hearing that there were 4 combat jumps by the 82nd during WWII. Sicily, Holland, Salerno and Normandy. Exactly where was Ste, Mere Eglise located and which of these jumps is it. I know that on Ft. Bragg, the drop zones are named after places that the 82nd made jumps during WWII.
St Mere Eglise is on the Normandy Coast in France
Thanks for the information. For some reason I thought there were 5 combat jumps in WWII.
