This photo was taken as part of “Operation Overlord” which occurred at Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. Iconic images of soldiers storming the beach are fairly common but they also had to deal with the after-effects of their battle. The men photographed here were from the 5th or 6th Engineer Special Brigade which can be spotted because of their helmet with the white arc and Jump Boots. The Landing Craft Tank (LCT) 30 in the background was part of Force O-2 attached to the 116th Infantry Division.
