Normandy Invasion, June 1944
A U.S. Army Jeep (nicknamed "Dam Yankee") is towed ashore on a Normandy beach, 12 June 1944.
Two of the men with this vehicle appear to be African-Americans.
Note the amphibious operation breathing tube leading to the engine compartment, and the U.S. flag mounted on the windshield.
Taken by Combat Photo Unit Eight (CPU-8).
Wartime censors have deleted markings on the Jeep's front bumper, and an object in the right distance.
