Utah Beach Normandy 1944 - Jean Jacobson - 09-28-2014

Vee, that is so sweet of you to post that video, knowing my special interest in Utah Beach.


I never asked my Dad enough detailed questions, and the reason for that was it was not a topic he was eager to discuss. These films have made me wonder if he went in with a whole group of medics or like in the picture he was mixed with the Infantry men. There is a medic that I have been in touch with, from a different regiment, and if I can still get in touch with him, and it seems appropriate, I will ask how he came onto Utah Beach and see what else I can get him to talk about.


Someday I will try to slow the video down and see if I can see any patches on uniforms, faces, etc. While I feel certain that was not my Dad's boat, maybe others can recognize someone they know.


I am forwarding that film and have already forwarded your other film to some folks.


Thank You So Much!
