ARMY TROOPS IN LCP(L)’S, during an amphibious training exercise, leave
Oahu for a beach landing. After the entry of the United States into World War II
training was intensified, and specialized training in amphibious landings was
given the troops arriving in the Hawaiian Islands since most of the islands to be
taken later would have to be assaulted over open beaches. In February 1943 the
Amphibious Training Area, Waianae, Oahu, was activated for training units in
amphibious landings. LCP(L)’s had no bow ramp for disembarking troops.
