In accordance with signal doctrine of that time, units such as the 56th Signal Battalion were assigned the mission of providing communications for U.S. Army corps headquarters.

On 1 July 1942, the 56th Signal battalion embarked from New York aboard the transport ship "Argentina" en route to Northern Ireland. On D-Day, 6 June 1944, assigned to Fifth U.S. Corps, the battalion participated in initial amphibious landings on Omaha Beach, Normandy, France.
