Landing of the US Troops
Utah Beach- "We'll start the war from here!"
George “Jimmy” Green
Staff Sergeant Edward, apart of the 463rd Amphibious Truck Company spend D-Day in the English channel. After being off track and looking for the 116th regimental team his division realized they were only a mile away from the intended landing site. He recalls turning to his right and running through the enemy fire and around the casualties as fast as he could. He states “so many in the water, so many on the sand moaning, falling, creeping... Suffering and confusion everywhere.” “Every man did his job without hesitation or complaint.” Edward survived the fighting that day and lives to tell the experiences of it.
