Exercise / Operation Tiger
Click Certificate for larger image
An operation designed to train American Army and British Naval forces for landing on Utah beach during D-Day. Both forces lost hundreds of men. US forces were killed during the training due to a time change for live-fire artillery they were not notified about. A US Admiral bore responsibility for the communication failure. Naval forces were killed by German submarine wolf packs they failed to detect. However, the actual landings at Utah Beach in June, 1944 resulted in a lower than expected loss of Allied lives from enemy fire. But when averaging in the friendly fire and enemy-caused fatalities during Operation Tiger, Utah losses were high. The Operation losses were not reported to the American and British publics until well after the war ended. Authorized for Active Duty and Ready Reserve Service service during the Operation Period.
