||LCT-403 beached, probably on one of the Great Lakes. Note the decoy LCT on the beach. Built by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. at Akron, Ohio, these decoys were deployed on British beaches in southeast England as part the imaginary forces of the phantom First US Army Group, under the command of Lt. Gen. George S. Patton.The First US Army was created to make the Germans believe the invasion of Europe would come through the Pas de Calais instead of Normandy.
