Sea sick bags! I've seen a copy of letter from a British soldier who landed in Normandy who mentions being issued with them and its not impossible that so were the US troops. If they were waterproofing bags for weapons, kit etc it seems unlikely that they would be removed before they jumped into the water!. If you look carefully ot the OP you can see a man just in front of the starboard side of the ramp holding what appears to be a Garrand still in its bag.
