Senior Airman Brett Hook, a 123rd Airlift Wing loadmaster, closes the ramp on a C-130 Hercules aircraft at the Kentucky Air National Guard Base in Louisville, Ky., June 1, 2019, in preparation for a deployment to France. Hook and 30 other Kentucky Guardsmen will participate in the 75th-anniversary reenactment of D-Day by airdropping U.S. Army paratroopers over Normandy on June 9. The aircraft has been striped with historically accurate Allied Forces livery in honor of the event, which turned the tide of World War II in the European theater.
