Evacuating Wounded Soldiers

Evacuating Wounded Soldiers Famous Historical Events Visual Arts World War II Disasters

D-Day produced thousands of casualties.  Harrison Standley painted a scene of evacuated soldiers, as depicted here.  

This image is from the U.S. Army Center of Military History’s The Normandy Invasion:  The Story in Pictures where it is described, as follows:

Stretcher bearers of a medical battalion carry a casualty from the hold of an LST to a waiting ambulance which will take them to a nearby field hospital.  The LST had just returned from Normandy bringing about 300 ambulatory casualties and about 30 stretcher cases. 

Seamen from the LST's and soldiers about to embark for France watch with interest.  On board the evacuating LST's the cases are cared for by Navy medical personnel, June 1944.  HARRISON STANDLEY
