    My Father was one of the first batch of American Troops to land in Northern France. He went on to going on up all the way into central Italy. Many of these Americans and British Fighters were involved in Operation Dragoon. Operation Dragoon was supposed to happen at the same time as Operation Overlord (D-D Invasion) but the Operation Overlord took the lions share of the Higgins Boats so they had to postpone Operation Dragoon for a few days.
