"D" Day, June 6, 1944

Postby Jim Sheppard » Fri Jun 06, 2014 11:34 am

In remembrance of our 50th infantry, 70 years ago:

The 50th Armored Infantry Battalion moved ashore at Normandy after the beachhead had been
established...and did not participate in the initial beach landings. Action soon followed as the
50th was responsible for the liberation of the towns of Brehal and Granville, France, and the
capture of over 300 enemy soldiers.
