The 29th Division's 116th Regiment, officially nicknamed the 'Stonewall Brigade', landed on Omaha Beach on June 6,1944. They were tasked with spearheading the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France. Coming ashore grossly overloaded and seasick, they struggled through the rough surf, mined beach obstacles, murderous machine gun fire, and unyielding artillery to reach their intended objectives. With a heritage that is traced back to the American Civil War, the "Stonewallers" upheld their proud legacy of courage and valor.
