Allen Machan (He apparently went by Allen) was nephew to my Grandmother Genevieve Geddes. I was told as a child he died at D-Day but they didn't know any more details. His dad is Andrew Machan and mom is Hazel-Mae Machan, nee Goodman. Allen was born in Canada, as was his dad. His mom was born in Iow

29th Division, Headquarters Co.
After Action Report
Elements of Headquarters Company and attached units aboard LCI 414 landed on Omaha Beach in the vicinity of Vierville-sur-Mer at 1500 hours on 6 June 1944 for the participation of the invasion of Europe. The remaining elements of the Forward Echelon could not land at this time because of heavy machine gun and artillery fire falling on the beach. The command post originally scheduled to be set up at a chateau picked from a serial photograph could not be used because the advance elements of the assault troops had not reached their first objective. The elements of the advance group set up the first command post in a stone quarry one hundred yards from the beach on the road to Vierville-sur-Mer. This command post operated at this location until 8 June 1944 when the remaining elements of the Forward Echelon landed at 1500 hours on Dog Red Beach and proceeded to the command post at the stone quarry on the road to Vierville-sur-Mer. The command post then moved four hundred yards inland to Vierville-sur-Mer.
