On this day in March, 1945, Captain Lewis Nixon, of 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, parachuted with the U.S 17th Airborne Division as part of the Allies' Operation Varsity. Operation Varsity was the largest airborne operation in history to be conducted on one day and in one place. It involved over 16,000 paratroopers and glider troops of the U.S 17th Airborne and the British 6th Airborne (including 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion paratroopers), and thousands of aircraft. The armada stretched over 200 miles and took 2 hours and 37 minutes to pass any given point. Over 2,100 fighter planes escorted to protect the carrier aircraft. Varsity was a part of Operation Plunder, an Allied mission of crossing the river Rhine into Germany. The objective of Varsity was to drop airborne troops on the east of the river to aid the ground troops in their crossing of the Rhine. The operation was concluded a success. At 10am the Airborne troops began landing on German soil, about 13 hours after the main ground assault began. They captured all objectives and the ground troops were able to advance. ♠♠ #bandofbrothers #ww2 #wwii #operationvarsity #lewisnixon #ronlivingston #ww2history #history #17thairbornedivision #6thairborne #1stcanadianparachutebattalion #militaryhistory #onthisday #operationplunder

The Navy had a funny tradition - every time a plane would land on the wrong carrier, it would be covered with graffiti before being returned. There's also a historical rivalry between the branches of the military, hence the "Must be Air Force" slogan. Moments of levity like this were important to break up the monotony of life in the military, and also to raise morale during a dark and frightening time.

So, what’s the use of cleaning her all up if you can’t take her out for a glamour shot?

El arco de triunfo de Orange (Francia 🇫🇷), en la antigua ciudad de Arausio, fue construido durante el reinado de Augusto (27 a.C.-14 d.C.) para conmemorar a los veteranos de las guerras de las Galias y la Legio II Augusta. Fue posteriormente reconstruido por el emperador Tiberio (14-37 d.C.) para celebrar las victorias🎖de Germánico sobre las tribus germanas en Renania, y durante la Edad Media fue usado como un castillo 🏰 para proteger los puntos de entrada meridionales de la ciudad. El arco está decorado con varios relieves de temas militares, incluyendo batallas ⚔️ navales, botines de guerra y legionarios combatiendo a bárbaros (foto 2).
