26-G-2571: Normandy Invasion, June 1944. G.I. Jam Session. These two khaki-clad jitterbugs don’t require much space as they cut the proverbial rug on the fantail of a Coast Guard-manned troop transport carrying American troops to the European battle zone. Soldiers and Coast Guardsman off watch swarm around the hundreds as they seek diversion on the long trip across. The Coast Guard orchestra at left provides the hot licks, June 1944. (5/19/2015).
