Royalty Free Picture of D-Day,  Invasion of Nomandy France

 

TOWED BACK FROM DEATH - Torn by Nazi shells, the landing barge was sinking. Americn soldiers aboard appeared lost as the little craft settled in the English Channel waters. Then came a Coast Guard Rescue Cutter poking boldly into the shoal waters. A line was cast and made fast. The Coast Guard 83-footer and its tow were soon headed out from danger. Transferred to the rescue craft, the surviviors raised to more than 750 the number of Allied invaders rescued by the Coast Guard's "Match Box Fleet" in the channel on D-Day and the critical days following.
