Soldier going ashore on D-Day, – by Robert Capa, June 6, 1944

At 6:31 a.m. Robert Capa landed in the first wave on Omaha Beach. He captured ‘bloody Omaha’ in what turned out to be a world famous photo sequence.

Capa described the morning, “After the pre-invasion breakfast at 3 am with hot cakes, sausages, eggs and coffee, served on the invasion ship by white-coated waiters, at 4 am the invasion barges were lowered down into the rough sea. The men from my barge waded in the water. I paused for a moment on the gangplank to take my first real picture of the invasion. The boatswain who was in a hurry to get the hell out of there, mistook my picture-taking attitude for explicable hesitation, and helped me make up my mind with a well-aimed kick in the rear. The water was cold and the beach still more than a hundred yards away. The bullets tore holes in the water around me and I made for the nearest steel obstacle.”

His three rolls of film were rushed to London for processing. There a darkroom technician, eager for glimpses of the landing, dried the film too fast. The excessive heat melted the emulsion and ruined all but 10 frames. The soldier in the picture has been identified as Edward Regan or Alphonse Joseph Arsenault.

Veterans helping each other out with a light.  Could you imagine losing BOTH of your hands?  I’m glad their lives were spared though.

A poor family on their porch.  I’m so glad for modern conveniences like washing machines and dishwashers.  Could you imagine doing laundry like this for a large family?  I’m sure they didn’t have as many clothes or wash them as often but still it must have taken all morning to wash and hang them dry.

I love that they brought their own table and tablecloth.  Check out how many bottles of wine they have.  One for each I think.  LOL
