3:35   |   Upon landing in Normandy, Deibler and his company were assigned the task of taking the bridges that led to Carentan. The bridges were heavily surrounded by the Germans, so the men took the lochs in order to gain an advantage over them. When Colonel Johnson called upon Major Allen’s troops in Abbeville to help take the bridges, Deibler and his company were fired upon by 88’s.
