This pain-stakingly colorized photograph is based on an Robert F. Sargent’s original photograph, taken at 0740 on June 6th, marking the commencement of Operation Neptune, more commonly known as D-Day. Depicting a Higgins LCVP launching from the USS Samuel Chase, soldiers of the 16th Infantry Regiment, US 1st Infantry Division wade onto Omaha Beach.

The original caption reads

“American invaders spring from the ramp of a Coast Guard-manned landing barge to wade those last perilous yards to the beach of Normandy. Enemy fire will cut some of them down. Their 'taxi' will pull itself off the sands and dash back to a Coast Guard manned transport for more passengers.”
