This archival historical photograph, originally titled "TAXIS TO HELL – AND BACK – INTO THE JAWS OF DEATH," is printed to art gallery-grade specifications and is suitable for framing.
Robert F. Sargent, a Chief Photographer's Mate in the US Coast Guard, took this photograph from the interior of a Coast Guard-crewed landing craft, the USS Samuel Chase, on June 6, 1944. Into the Jaws of Death hauntingly portrays the view that would have faced American G.I.'s rushing out of those landing craft to storm the Nazi-held beaches on D-Day. For an image to remind you daily of the steely courage of those warriors who came before us, look no further than this.
HONOR THE PAST. INSPIRE THE FUTURE.
Franklin and Thomas — the CIVVIESUPPLY* brothers — grew up in Lexington, South Carolina with a profound appreciation for the United States of America. Stories from their grandfathers — both former Army officers — about numerous family members who fought in almost every major conflict inspired the brothers to attend The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina and later join the US Army. Thomas, an Airborne and Ranger-qualified Infantry officer, served on active duty from 2016 to 2022, and now serves in the SC Army National Guard, where Franklin has served as a Public Affairs officer since 2016.
Their love of country and desire to be apart of something greater than themselves led them to launch CIVVIESUPPLY in 2018. They’d encourage you to join the community of CIVVIESUPPLY patriots in their mission of honoring the past to inspire the future.
