Did the entire division land of 7 June, or were one or more of the infantry regiments remaining afloat until the 8th or 9th?
I don't know, everything I have read states that the 2d ID landed on 7 June, I have never seen a breakdown on what landed and what did not land. Sorry. Maybe it is listed in the book entitled "Omaha Beachhead", I will look.
