RES. 305 Designating April 28, 1994, as ``Exercise Tiger Day''. _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES January 25, 1994 Mr. Frank of Massachusetts introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service _______________________________________________________________________ JOINT RESOLUTION Designating April 28, 1994, as ``Exercise Tiger Day''. Whereas the D-Day invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, was one of the most critical and heroic battles leading to the Allied victory over Nazi Germany in World War II; Whereas, on April 28, 1944, during the Exercise Tiger training mission for D- Day, the soldiers and sailors of Exercise Tiger were unexpectedly attacked by a flotilla of German torpedo boats off the coast of Slapton Sands, England; Whereas 749 American soldiers were killed in the attack; Whereas the heroic efforts of these soldiers have not been sufficiently recognized in American history and the soldiers of Exercise Tiger have not been appropriately honored for their great sacrifice in defending the Nation; and Whereas April 28, 1994, will be the 50th anniversary of the tragedy of Exercise Tiger: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That April 28, 1994, is designated as ``Exercise Tiger Day'', and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs. <all>
