Propaganda Style Pinup Poster featuring Kelsey in this tribute to the Airborne Paratroopers of World War 2. The 82nd Airborne, along with the 101st and many other Airborne squadrons from many countries played a pivotal role in paving the way during D-Day (June 6, 1944). Thousands of Us Army men found themselves deep behind enemy lines as they were dropped the morning of the invasion, and as they gained more and more land they eventually linked up with the forces from the Normandy beachhead securing the way to the Nazi defeat.

The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing propeller-driven airliner. Its cruise speed (207 mph or 333 km/h) and range (1,500 mi or 2,400 km) revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Its lasting effect on the airline industry and World War II makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made.

Fallschirmjäger is the German word for paratroopers. They played an important role during World War II, when, together with the Gebirgsjäger they were perceived as the elite infantry units of the German military. After World War II, they were reconstituted as parts of postwar armed forces of both West and East Germany, mainly as special ops troops. German Fallschirmjäger in World War II were the first paratroopers to be committed in large-scale airborne operations. They came to be known as the "green devils" by the Allied forces they fought against, as well as for their uniquely distinct morale.
