Harry C. Ingles Chapter Awards

This is awarded to chapters which have most significantly contributed to the goals of AFCEA. Winning chapters, which compete against other chapters in the same size category, are selected by the AFCEA International Awards Committee.

Major General Harry C. Ingles was Chief Signal Officer of the Army from 1 July 1943 until 31 March 1947. During Ingles' tenure in the branch's highest position, Signal troops landed in France on D‑Day by parachute with the 101st Airborne and afoot with the 294th and 286th Joint Assault Signal Companies on Omaha and Utah Beaches, respectively.  The 165th Signal Photographic Company also landed with the first infantry elements at Omaha Beach. Ingles, who was born in Pleasant Hill, Nebraska, on 12 March 1888, graduated from West Point in 1914, and served in World War II in both Panama and the European Theater of Operations before becoming Chief Signal Officer.  After its phenomenal buildup for the war, the Corps lost its aviation communications‑electronics responsibilities to other services, but the expanding military communications‑electronics field quickly restored its losses and greatly enlarged the Signal Corps.
