I had the great pleasure of meeting a D-DAY troop transporter (LST ?) officer in Jamestown NY in June. 96 year old Veteran.
He made 5 drops on D day. 2 he's says we're regrettably on the wrong beach before he got ...as he said..." his s#!+ straight".
3 troop carriers near him were "scraffed bad and 2 hit with "big guns , never lost a man while still on my ship".
I'd wish I had more time to talk to him.
A True Hero!
