Veterans to be Honored at Exercise Tiger Ceremony in Mexico
The United States Exercise Tiger Foundation is looking for veterans to attend an event at the Audrain County Courthouse in Mexico tomorrow (Friday), April 28, 2023, to commemorate the 79th anniversary of the Battle of Exercise Tiger in World II.
Exercise Tiger is known as a World-War II rehearsal in 1942 for D-Day that went wrong.
A lack of communication and coordination resulted in both hundreds of friendly-fire deaths and attacks from German E-boats where 201 Missourians were killed.
The Exercise Tiger Foundation will be recognizing employees with the county and the city of Mexico who are veterans and will be presented with Medals of Combat Valor.
The ceremony takes place at 1 tomorrow afternoon (Friday).
