Dear Tania If Louie is correct with the reference to George Tirado of the 115th Infantry Regiment of the US 29th Infantry Division then it is likely reasonable to assume that he was due with the later arriving flights 0900 hours onwards on the EASY GREEN/DOG RED sectors of Omaha beach.. following up behind the initial assault wave of the 116th Infantry Regiment, of which, 'A' Company, landed by British LCA's (Landing Craft/Assault)off the Royal Navy's Empire Javelin were decimated.In truth,'A'Company of the 116th were, to all intents and purposes....wiped out. The 1st and 2nd Battalion's of the 115th are recorded 'on call'at H-Hour+240 minutes, the 1st assigned to EASY GREEN sector and the 2nd assigned to DOG RED sector....at H+270 minutes the 3rd Battalion are recorded 'on call' also for DOG RED.ALL it would seem carried to the beach and landed from LCI(L)'s (Landing Craft Infantry (Large)...!! Given the chaos and carnage on Omaha beach what time it was when George Tirado struggled ashore is open to debate..!!
