As a squad leader in the 4th Platoon, I decided it would be a good idea to have someone accompany the glider elements of the 82d Airborne Division on D-Day. My name was submitted as the "volunteer" to make the first U.S. Army Quartermaster Graves Registration combat airborne landing.
The sun was still shining and the weather was beautiful in a place called Normandy, France. It was early evening and we had about four hours before dark. While the bulk of the troops began to free the vehicle and equipment from the glider debris, I volunteered to look for the assembly point.
I decided the time had come for me to be, and to act like, the graves registration representative that I was. For the first time in my life I touched a dead man. I grabbed the leg of one of the bodies and rolled it off onto the ground.
Lieutenant Fraim came by and instructed me to start visualizing how I would lay out a cemetery in the field.
After studying the surrounding terrain, I went to one corner of the field and stuck my heel in the ground. This would be the upper left corner of the first grave.
SERGEANT LEGG V/O (CONTD):
I found an empty K-ration carton and split it into wooden stakes. I paced off the graves in rows of 20 and marked them with the stakes.
I had no transit, tape measure, shovels, picks or any other equipment needed to establish a properly laid out cemetery.
I also lacked burial bags–mattress covers, grave registration forms and personal effects bags. The situation rapidly exceeded what had originally been planned for the one-man graves registration unit, and this was still the first day.
