WESTERN TASK FORCE
JUNE 1944

From: Commanding Officer USS LCI(L) 542 (OMAHA BEACH)

Although twelve hours after H-hour, the beachhead did not appear well organized. There was only one visible beach marking; no shore parties were in evidence where this ship landed. There was little traffic control off the beach, and no channels were noticeable. LCI(L)s, LCTs, and other craft maneuvered haphazardly, frequently cutting across lines of approach. This ship beached upon receiving orders from the Senior Officer present in USS LCI(L) 420

Both convoy and far-shore radio frequencies were jammed continuously. No enemy air or naval craft were observed during the action.
