US Army Rangers stage commemorative D-Day climb

Army Rangers climb the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc, France June 4, 2019, to honor the 135 Rangers killed or wounded 75 years earlier as they captured and held the German artillery positions at the site on D-Day. Courtesy photo.

Editor’s note: those participating in the commemorative climb are wearing not only present-day US Army uniforms but also historical US Army uniforms in the style that US Army Rangers would have worn on D-Day. See D-Day at Pointe-du-Hoc for a documentary narrated by David McCallum on the Rangers mission that day.
