Son of Capt. Butch Hansen, USN Ret., Active Duty Army Captain, Cpt. Joseph Hansen, USA of 1-10 Special Forces Group, Stuttgart Germany recently participated in the 71st anniversary parajump into Normandy, France. This event commemorated D-Day with a parachute jump into Memorial Field. This jump was completed 71 years after his grandfather, Joseph Lee, completed it with the 82nd Airborne in 1944.

The Hansen family is rich in military history. It is a privilege to have multiple generations in our community that are so steep in American military pride. To see Capt. Joseph Hansen land his parajump on the 71st anniversary of D-Day, see the video below. What a powerful moment!
