Military Snapshot - 327th Glider Infantry Regiment Troops Take to the Water

Due to a shortage of glider tow-planes, elements of the 327th Glider Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division embark for Utah Beach on LCVPs. Part of General Howell's C-Force, they were originally slated to arrive on D-plus-2, but instead hit the beach on D-Day.
