Early life Edit
Ivarsen enlisted in the US Army some time prior to 1944, and likely trained with the 29th Infantry Division at Fort Meade, Maryland. After crossing the Atlantic and arriving in Great Britain, Ivarsen would have trained for the invasion of Normandy at a number of locations across England and Scotland.
Operation Overlord Edit
Early in the day on 6 June 1944, Ivarsen was among the first to disembark onto the French beach under heavy machine-gun fire. When his unit becomes pinned down along the sea wall, his commanding officer orders him to retrieve Private Jones, the demolitions expert, located further down the beach. Unfortunately, Ivarsen is cut down by machine-gun moments later.
