Operation Troutfly Report

Handwritten document

At the intersection of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops and D-Day lies Operation Troutfly. A Ghost Army radio contingent was tasked to be part of the D-Day landing force. Their mission was to conduct a deception in support of the 82nd Airborne.  The mission was canceled, but they ended up working with the airborne anyway. The details can be found in Lt. Fred Fox's handwritten report below.
