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.
On D-Day, 6 June 1944, Slaughter found himself on Omaha Beach facing murderous German defenses. He would survive that day, and the rest of the war, *receiving two Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars for his service. But he thought himself no hero, and never forgot his brothers-in-arms who did not come home.
