    On D+1, the 2nd Infantry Division hit the beach at St. Laurent-sur-Mer. According to the unit history, despite the date, 7 June 1944, “before moving in(land), one regiment was forced to blast out a company of Germans.” It would be another three days before weapons, communications equipment and vehicles would reach shore. Until then, the only vehicle in the division was a jeep loaned by another unit to Division Commander Maj. Gen. Walter M. Robertson. The first assignment of the ‘Indian Head’, the small town of Trevieres, was attacked by the 9th and 38th Regiments at 1200 hrs on 9 June. The village was held by well-prepared defensive positions and it would not be until the end of the day that the 38th had secured a foothold in the town. It was not until the end of 10th June that they cleared Trevieres, after a house-to-house fight.

    The 2nd’s push neither stopped nor hesitated at Trevieres. Spearheaded by the 9th and 38th Infantry Regiments, the division pushed through Le Molay, and the Foret de Cerisy, until it struck the first definitive enemy defense-line running west from Brigny through St. Georges d’Elle. In two days, the division had advanced overland 16 miles (10 miles as the crow flies). In the fight for St. Georges d’Elle, Pfc. Ralston A. Shepherd, 23rd Infantry, saved three companies from mass slaughter. Cornered in an area 30 by 100 yards, with hedgerows skirting both sides, the companies lay in direct line of fire from a Flak gun. Shepherd placed his BAR over a gate post and fired more than 1000 rounds, dispersing the enemy gun crew before it had the opportunity to go into action. The companies took advantage of the precious time, reorganized and fought their way out of the trap. For his action, Shepherd was awarded the Silver Star.
