"UTAH BEACH"

D-Day Normandy

"UTAH BEACH"

At 0630 on the morning of June 6, 1944, Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. armed only with a .45 colt and clutching a wooden cane, led the U.S. Army’s 4th Infantry Division ashore in the first assault wave at Utah Beach on the Normandy coast of France. Of the five assault beaches on D-Day, the Utah beach landing was the most successful due to the conduct of General Roosevelt.

He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions that day. Years after the war, General Omar Bradley, then Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, was asked by a magazine syndicate for a statement on the bravest act he had ever known in over forty years of military service. He described General Roosevelt’s conduct on Utah Beach.
