What info is there on the US 115th Infantry Regiment?
The 115th Infantry Regiment was one of the three regiments of the US 29th "Blue & Grey" Infantry Division. This unit was called into service early in the war and began training. However, their training continued in the US and in England for a long period in preparation for the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France. The 115th Regiment was supposed to land behind the 116th Regiment(29 Division) on Omaha Beach and provide support in the advance off of the beach. Instead, their landing craft drived eastward and they landed behind the 18th Regimen(1st US Infantry Division) just east of St. Laurent. By nightfall, they were still north of the ST. Laurent-Colleville road. They fought in the vicinity of where the American Cemetery is located at Colleville sur Mur. Recommend this book that is about a group of men in the 116th Regiment, 29 Division, but it will provide a glimpse into the training and casualties of this unit: "The Bedford Boys" by Alex Kershaw.

Omaha Beach Here is the REAL story of the Ranger Battalion depicted in the movie. Company C (Charlie Company) of the 2nd Ranger Battalion was assigned to Task Force B, which was part of the Provisional Ranger Group formed by both the 2nd and 5th Ranger Battalion units. The Provisional Ranger Group was temporarily attached to the 116th Infantry Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division. Assisting Task Force B in its mission was a platoon of DD Tanks from Company B of the 743rd Tank Battalion. Company C boarded HMS Prince Charles on June 1st, 1944 at Weymouth, England. Task Force B was to land at Charlie Sector (located directly to the west of Dog Green Sector) at 06:33 a.m. along with Company A of the 116th Infantry Regiment, and Company B of the 743rd Tank Battalion. The first platoon (LCA 418) was commanded by Lieutenant William Moody, and the second platoon (LCA 1038) was commanded by Lieutenant Sydney Salomon. The commander of the company, Captain Ralph Goranson, rode with the first platoon. Unable to contact Company A of the 116th by radio, and seeing the beating that the 29th Division was receiving at Dog Green, Captain Goranson ordered his surviving men to proceed up the cliffs. Following his men, Goranson himself reached the top around 7:15 a.m. Source: On-line Encyclopedia for "Saving Private Ryan" -- www.sproe.com
