It has become a bit of a cliche but the first 15-20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan is about as close as anyone that was not there can get to knowing what it was like.

The beginning of the film Saving Private Ryan is as close as anyone who wasn't there is likely to get, and I'm certain it's a damn poor illustration of the reality.
 
But imagine if we had real 3D with peripheral vision.... more of a virtual reality experience....

D-Day.  A day that changed the world. The Atlantic's waters were red. Not many of those folks left. We each should find ways to keep their memories alive.

A special part of my childhood growing up.  We could see it from where I lived on the east side of the bay.  Memories of crossing it in fog with the glow of the special sodium lights it had.  Ferry rides across the bay going by the bridge and Alcatraz, which was still open.  These ferry boats were what was used as the police station in Nash Bridges.  Being high up on a hill side where you could overlook the bay, see the fog roll in and fill up the entire basin, with the bridge disappearing except for the very tops poking above the fog.  Its was like someone dumped dry ice into the bay. The whole panarama of seeing the peaks of the hills poking about the fluffy and sometimes roiling fog under the bright sunlight above the fog... 

Its kinda mind boggling thinking back that it still pretty new when I was a kid.  Now its a majestic lady overlooking the Bay.

Yes, tear gas. Hard to remember anything that happened right before the shooting. 

 
This gave me chills!  They probably had not registered what had just happened. It still profoundly shocks me that this happened in the USA.  That you were there is also chilling!  What a horrible wake up call.

Yeah, I would say it's before the shooting, except for the smoke. Or everyone was really stunned, there were a few moments of dead silence.

What happened was that all of a sudden everyone was shooting. Everyone being the National Guard. It happened in a matter of seconds. There was silence and disbelief. Then chaos.

 
There is now evidence that an FBI paid informant fired the first shot.

Yeah sorry but if there's gunplay I'm for running away. People get hurt watching baseball games. But I guess the smoke in the photo probably is from some "pre-gunfire" shenanigans, nothing to fear.

Not to downplay the seriousness of that event but really that's not the kind of defensive posture one would expect to see when people are being fired upon.
