Luke AFB Thunderbolt – Base Newspaper for Luke AFB, serving the West Valley region of Phoenix, AZ – June 2019
Thanks for checking out the June edition of the Luke AFB Thunderbolt! This month we lead off with a focus on the anniversary of the D-Day invasion, 75 years ago on June 6, 1944. “Operation Overlord”, the code name for the Allied force’s daring plan to storm and dismantle Hitler’s beachfront fortifications in Normandy, is widely acknowledged as the turning point in the battle to liberate Europe from Nazi control. 156,000 heroic souls assaulted occupied France from the sea and the skies, earning their place in history and gratitude for their sacrifices that continues to this day.
