G.I. Silva on the left, was shut at by Gefreiter Gefreiter Heinrich Severloh, at Omaha Beach. Both survive and became friends during Silva's time as occupation G.I. in Germany. Severloh had been in trouble for remarks against Hitler, but on D-Day, he had no choice. He manned the most deadly position on Omaha Beach, firing Silva and his comrades. He suffered from it all his life. Here are the 2 men at Omaha Beach in 2005. Severloh died the following year.
