Photo of D-Day invasion force

View of the invasion force off the Normandy coast, photographed from USS Ancon (AGC-4), with Omaha Beach in the background and barrage balloons overhead. The amount of smoke on the beach strongly indicates that the photograph was taken on D-Day, June 6th 1944.

USS LST-373 is at right.
