There was another "Beasley" that died on June 6, 1944, during the D-Day invasion. He was PFC Elbert M. Beasley, Jr. from Mississippi. He was with the 22nd Infantry Regiment, Company K and was killed on Utah Beach. Is it possible that PFC Elbert Beasley was the soldier referenced in the scene from Saving Private Ryan?
