They were the naval beach battalions or (NBB's)....and they were I.D.ed by red helmet markings..... Secretly trained they were the U.S. Navy medical teams.....and they were on Omaha Beach, on June 6th, 1944. I talk of "they"...well "they were 18 doctors and 144 corpsmen who landed in the early hours of D-Day."
So as you can see this article somewhat fits on the heels of the prior article.....so if you'd care to give this one a read as well....I think you'll get some idea of what these guys had to deal with when landing on the Normandy beach heads.....and the guts it took to make all the attempts they could to save lives in a very high casualty assault.
