    Oct 20th, 1944. One of those dramatic moments that defined a stage of the war in the PTO.

    Read somewhere that all of the pics of him wading ashore were staged. He initially stepped off his Higgins onto the sand, but someone mentioned that it would be a more dramatic picture if he got his feet wet wading ashore. So they went out a little bit, turned around, and dropped him off a bit further out for the photos.
