6-6-1944 D-Day remember.

Major Werner Pluskat, commanding the 1st Battalion of the 352nd Artillery Regiment of the German 352nd Infantry Division during the Allied invasion in Normandy spots the invasion force off of Omaha beach and reports directly to his Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Ocker, who dismisses his claim while sipping coffee. Lt. Fritz Theen is with Pluskat when he spots the ships.
Later claims suggest that it was a machine gunner who was the first one.
