If you are talking American Infantry Divisions, the Big Red One is the nickname for the US 1st Infantry Division. One of the oldest US Divisions. This Div. landed at Omaha Beach during the Normandy invasion. The 8th US Inf. Div. is a different Division. This US Div., landed at Utah beach during the same operation. They are two completly different units.
