Norwegians across the country commemorated the country’s Veterans Day, first observed in 2011. (Pictured here at Solheim Kirke cemetery in Bergen, hosted by minister of education, the mayor of Bergen and the commandant of the Bergenhus Fortress). The remembrance on May 8 recognizes the efforts of veterans of World War II, United Nations peacekeeping initiatives and other international operations, including serving alongside or in support of U.S. operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. The day also recognizes alliances. Military.com caught up with a vet who reconfigured a WW-II era jeep to honor Norway’s 132nd Wing, a strike squadron that operated with the U.K., France and the US during the war. The vet, who trained in Alabama alongside the US Army to operate helicopters, now has a son who flies F-16s for the country’s air force. His son next heads to Luke AFB, Ariz., to train on the F-35. The vet will drive his American-made jeep to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D-Day next month.
