First Special Engineer Brigade Monument

The First Engineer Special Brigade,
with the 594th Regiment ,
is the unit that transported
my outfit, the 301st Port Company
and the 90th Division, and a number
of reporters and photographers
from "Stars and Stripes" Newspaper.
We were all aboard , the Liberty Ship,
S.S.George E. Pickett,when we departed
from England on June 1st, 1944 .
The next stop was
Utah Beach on
D Day, H.Hour, @ 6:30 am
on June 6th,1944.
It was pointed out to me,
that nowhere in my blog
is this information posted.
There is a Monument on Utah
Beach today, dedicated to The Brigade.
The Title on this posting will link
you to The Brigade History site.
