The 62nd Armored Field Artillery landed on Omaha Beach on June 6th, 1944 and earned a Presidential Unit Citation for it’s actions that day. A recent eBay purchase provides us with a view the 62nd saw that day before the delayed landing at 1830. This photo is a rare glimpse of the activity off the shore of Omaha Beach on that fateful day. Note the puffs of smoke and landing craft zipping across the waves. Although not unheard of, June 6th landing photos are a holy grail amongst collectors. Enjoy!
