casualties the 4th Division suffered
on Utah Beach were much lighter
than the losses of the 1st and 29th
Division at Omaha Beach. Only
about 175 soldiers were killed or
wounded at Utah Beach as
compared to nearly 3,000 Americans
Despite this, the medics still had
plenty of work to do.
American soldiers literally dig in,
burrowing holes in the soft sand as
they claim a section of the beach.
