Members of a US Medical Corps lift wounded onto a Douglas C 47A (42-24195) Air Ambulance of the 313th Air Transport Squadron of the 31st Air Transport Group, 9th Air Force. Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) A-21 in Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer. June 10 1944
The first medical transport from A-21 took place on June 9th at 6 pm. There were 24 stretchers in the C-47 and the flight to England lasted 45 minutes.
The C-47s brought fresh infantry to the beachhead and flew out again with casualties.
The ambulance was part of one of the medical units of the 5th ESB (see the registration on the rear door of the Dodge WC54)
The A-21 airstrip was on the west side of the ‘Easy Red’ area of Omaha Beach and was constructed by the IX Engineering Command, 834th Engineer Aviation Battalion.
A field hospital including the 806th Medical Air Evacuation Squadron was located close to the airfield, which facilitated the air transport of the wounded including Normandy civilians to England,
Between June 10 and July 31, 1944, 25,959 American wounded had been returned from France by plane (this accounted for almost 33% of all US casualties)

Hey! Quick question: I've seen a lot about how Liz did petty crime as a teenager/young adult, and I feel like I remember it being canon, but I don't actually remember where it might've been in the series. Do you happen to know anything about that? Thanks!! :D
Hey anon. Yes the lines are here in Madeline Pratt, when Red takes her to “audition” for Madeline.
Red: Tell her that story about Frank. Madeline: Who’s Frank? A guy I knew. Madeline:What story? We met in high school. We grifted. Small jobs really, just whatever
we had to do to pay the rent. Red: Tell her about Omaha. I was 17. There was a drugstore. Thursday night. They made bank deposits on
Friday. I was the lookout. The night manager came back. He forget his glasses. I gave the signal, but nothing. I’d convinced myself that Frank
was the only thing I had in the world, so the night manager was an easy
decision. Madeline:What did you– I seduced him
into the alley. Madeline: And then what? I played him for a little bit,
then I kissed him off, told him he’d get more next week. And Frank and I went away.
She then palmed Madeline Sim card from her phone, and then do a brush pass with the Embassy official. We have also seen her stealing cars in Eli Matchett, break locks on numerous occasions, including Isabella Stone, steal phones, and try to steal evidence. She also stole Tom’s passports from the evidence room. She stole the phone from Jaster in Kings of the Road. She also is very good at sleigh of hand, as we have seen in The Djinn.
Red seems to know all about this, so I suspect Red has had her watched her entire life.
How did you know about Omaha? I didn’t. You’re the one who brought it
up. Well, it was a heartwarming story. The night manager and the alley. I made it up. You’re not a cop tonight. You’re a criminal. And you’re gonna be fine. Just be yourself.
and when Ressler asks her, she declines to answer:
Red: I’m flattered that you think I’m up
to it, but thieving is not my strongest suit. Luckily, we have an ace of spades
among us. Isn’t that right, Agent Keen? Cooper: What’s he talking about? Is
there something you want to tell us? No, sir. Ressler: Your father’s criminal record
didn’t show up on your background report. Maybe yours is missing, too. I don’t have a criminal record. Ressler: Because you never committed a
crime, or because you were never caught? Yes. I believe my work speaks for itself.
HERE IS AN EMO GLO UP. The pic on the left, I was a freshman at opening night of the red tour in Omaha sitting in the 400s hoping Taylor would look in my general direction. The pic on the right is from the 1989 tour Omaha, I’m a senior and Taylor knew my name. SORRY IM JUST SO EMO AND THANK YOU TAYLOR for growing up with me I love you so much!
For Christmas this year, my aunt got my cousins and myself tickets to the 1989 World Tour. We are from a small town in Georgia. We first saw you May 1st, 2009 in Jacksonville Florida on the Fearless Tour, which is still today one of the best shows I have ever seen. On June 4th, 2011 we headed to Orlando to see the speak now world tour, which was so magical. Christmas of 2012, My aunt got my cousin and I, tickets to the very first show on the red tour, in Omaha Nebraska. That trip is something that i’ll cherish forever. The thrill of not knowing what songs were going to be on the setlist and seeing the costumes for the first time. It was an unbelievable experience. You were actually staying at the hotel we were staying at, and we actually got to meet most of your band, dancers, and even some behind the scenes people. March 13th, 2013 will be a day I never forget thanks to you. This summer we are heading to New York for the first time ever, to come see you again. We will be at the New Jersey show on July 10th, and words cannot describe how excited we all are. I’m really hoping this trip/tour is the time we get to meet you. My cousin and I are about to start our senior year and couldn’t have gotten through high school without your music. Hopefully you see this and we can thank you for everything you have done for us over the past 9 years. Love you so much. We will be in Sec 142 row 20 on July 10th taylorswift
