56th Signal Battalion

On June 6, 1944, elements of the Battalion engaged in OPERATION NEPTUNE landed on Omaha Beach, France with the First Army to furnish ship to shore communications for V Corps Headquarters and wire, radio and messenger communications for the Divisions and Corps troops ashore. During the Normandy campaign the Battalion performed normal communication functions, but following the Allied breakthrough, across France Belgium and Luxemburg, the Battalion was fully extended. Radio and messenger communications were continuous and wire networks were installed to the extent that supplies of wire and gasoline were available.
