Our duty was to obtain information regarding operations ashore, and sending this information to Major General Leonard T. Gerow, who was aboard the Ancon. We were to keep him advised of the tactical and supply situation in the V Corps zone of action.
Our ride to the shore was very risky due to the weather. We were being passed by LCIs and LCTs loaded with men of the 1st and 29th Infantry division who were to make the assault as the first wave of the invasion, so we knew we were headed in the right direction.
At 0620 hours, the Colonel said to break radio silence with a message to the Ancon, "At line of departure, everything is GO."
We attempted several landings on the beach. Finally at high tide we tried again. The water being high was to our advantage; it helped us miss the underwater obstacles. These underwater barriers had mines and other explosives attached to them.
To give directions to the driver of our DUKW, I lay on the nose of the vehicle and gave hand signals to help guide us. I could see the mines and explosives attached to the obstacles. We were truly blessed that we made it through this maze.
1ST LIEUTENANT DEGNAN ACTOR V/O (CONTD):
Our antennae stuck up in the air about 15 feet making our presence a prime target. The infantrymen on the beach waved us off and I can still hear very clearly, "Get that %#*&@¢$ radio out of here."
We withdrew from the beach and ran parallel to the shore for a distance of 300 feet. From that distance we could observe more accurately the activity on the beach. We sent many radio messages to the Ancon advising General Gerow of the situation concerning both men and supplies.
