American assault troops on Omaha Beach

Omaha Beach

American assault troops are seen on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. Additional infantrymen can be seen disembarking from the Landing Craft Infantry on the right (LCI). LCI 83 was built in Texas, and participated in landings at Tunisia, Sicily and Salerno (Italy), before participating in the D-day invasion at Omaha Beach. On D-day LCI 83 hit a mine on a beach obstacle and only landed one load of infantry as seen in the photograph. LCI 83 was patched and re-floated at the end of the day, and after repairs in England delivered additional troops to Normandy throughout the summer of 1944.
