• Pictured above is the TIME MAGAZINE war correspondent Bill Walton (1910 – 1994), who jumped into Normandy with the 82nd Airborne Division the evening of June 5th - he wore his typewriter strapped to his chest. General Eisenhower had ordered all reporters in forward positions to wear sidearms.

• For newspapers, the first eyewitness account (airplane view) came from Gladwin A. Hill (1914 - 1992)... whom the AP calls 'the Air Marshall'. He flew to France in a B-26 and returned by prearrangement to a base near London where, also by prearrangement, telephone facilities awaited him.

• Henry T. Gorrell (1911 – 1958), veteran United Press correspondent, apparently got the first account through from the beachhead. Datelined from 'North Central France'.

• To Bert Brandt (1916 - 1975), aggressive Acme photographer, went undisputed honors. His picture of tanks and troops boarding an invasion [craft] reached America within four hours after the communiqué.

• The first complete account of the beachhead assault - by a correspondent who was in the first wave - was wirelessed by Kennith Crawford (1902 - 1983), of NEWSWEEK.

• The first reporters to be wounded: Henry B. Jameson (1913 - 1986) of the Associated Press and David Woodward of THE MANCHESTER GUARDIAN.
