A lot of Insignia can be found in an US GI Helmet (Marine does not put Insignia on their helmet as often)
It take some time to decode it, some insignia are still be using today.
Basically, all 4 sides of an US Army Helmet can be painted and used to identified either rank, unit, or formation
Insignia in the front of an helmet are usually rank
Insignia on the side of an helmet are usually unit
Insignia on the back of an helmet are either unit/status of a soldier
If you mean the insignia above, that is the rank of a Captain in the Army. Only Officer wear their Insignia in front of the helmet commonly, there are some NCO will put their rank up as well, not too common tho.
Rank that are below captain are painted on the helmet, while rank above Major are studded on.
There are 2 insignia involve a cross on a helmet the first one is a combat medic. The second one is a chaplain of the army.
If your cross is red in white background and painted all over the helmet like this:
If the cross you see is a silver cross that studded in front of a helmet like the rank. Then it mean that soldier is a Chaplain.
I have no idea what you mean on this, can you specify it?
A heart shaped insignia painted on the side of a helmet denote that soldier was serving in 2d Brigade, 101st Airborne Division. Usually refer to the soldier fromthe famous 502d PIR (The five-o-duece) noted the photo
Each of the different Brigade within 101st Airborne Div have their own insignia, usually comprise of the pattern from a deck of playing card (Poker Card)
Where as ;
1st Brigade uses ♣ (Club)
2nd Brigade uses ♥ (Heart)
3rd Brigade uses
4th Brigade uses ♠ (Spade)
Heavy Weapon Brigade uses ♦ (Diamond)
Bear in mind, only 101st Airborn uses unit insignia in WW2 helmet as a common practices, even the sister airborne unit does not uses any Unit insignia in their helmet.
Most armor brigade uses insignia in their helmet too.

小弟在此只為 steven 兄作些少補充：
1) D-day 當日尚有海軍人員參與，除駕駛登陸艇的之外，特別是想提提在灘頭負責分配登陸 zoneing 和疏導灘頭交通的第二、第六及第七 Navel Beach Battalion, 佢哋嘅標記係在頭盔正面有一個彩虹咁嘅「半圓拱」。
2) 至於陸軍方面 steven 兄忙中有漏答少咗您嘅係：頭盔後面，一般多數都無嘢，但亦有啲有一條約一吋粗嘅線。係用嚟比自己友就算從後面或遠處都知道邊度揾阿 sir。直線嘅意思係：Officer；橫線嘅意思係：NCO。
