Nobody seems to have dropped where they were supposed to. I haven't seen anyone from my unit yet, but luckily I've hooked up with some of the guys from Baker Company. We also have men from Able, Dog, and Fox Companies with us... what a mess.
We're getting ready to capture the village of Ste. Mere Eglise, about 5 miles from Utah Beach. We're approaching through a narrow field with minefields on each side. Captain Foley says there's two platoons of German paratroopers in that village. I'd say we've got a serious fight ahead of us.
The roads of Ste. Mere Eglise connect Utah beach to the main highway at the peninsula, which should put us right in the path of the most likely German counterattack.
