On 7 June 1944 The 4th Inf Div's 4th Medical Battalion put the wounded men listed below on a LCVP.  These 19 men left Utah Beach towards ships that would take them to Hospitals in England.  This LCVP hit a mine in the Bay of Seine.  Some were found days and weeks later and buried at sea.  Others were never found and two men were found all the way across the Bay and buried by the Germans.  Each IDPF is here as well, just click on the ASN.
