Secretary of the Army John McHugh speaks to WWII veterans June 3, 2012, including John Perrozi (shaking McHugh's hand), who was an 82nd Airborne Division paratrooper on D-Day. Perozzi received France's highest military medal, the Légion d'Honneur, later in the day during the D-Day commemoration event near Sainte Mere Eglise, France. Thousands of spectators joined veterans to observe the multi-national airborne operation honoring Allied paratroopers who participated in D-Day and went on to liberate Sainte Mere Eglise.
