IMAGES OF OUR PAST - KELSO HORNE - U.S. ARMY, WORLD WAR II


Dublin's Kelso Horne, 508th Regiment, 82nd 
Airborne Division, Normandy, June 1944.

Horne's picture on the cover of Life magazine is
one of the most highly sought after covers from
the magazine's World War II coverage.

Horne was one of the oldest paratroopers who
jumped into the early morning, treacherous night of 
June 6, 1944.
