Agreed! There were MANY amphibious landing operations using such craft. The largest (far bigger than D-Day) was Okinawa. They also were used in many smaller opertions, like crossing the Rhine river. They continued in use long after WWII, though amphibious vehicles gradually replaced them for personnel transport.

There were far more amphibious operations (many conducted by the Army without the Marine Corps) conducted during World War II than just Overlord.  Rest assured this craft will be put to good use somewhere in the world.
