We’ve been
together and have needed each other during many of the crucial turns of war and history! Glad we could help Napoleon out with the Louisiana Purchase!
I am deeply impressed that the French display their gratitude on Memorial Day. We were together.

I visited my uncle’s grave at the Lorraine American Cemetery a few years ago, just after Memorial Day. The caretaker there told us that a local girl scout troop (the French equivalent anyway) puts the flags up every year. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and knowing that the country continues to care for the soldiers that fought for them makes it even more beautiful.

We were there a few years back for the 60th anniversary of D-day and I can hardly remember a time of such emotion seeing all the French and American flags and the sacrifice they represent. All the French people in the surrounding villages lined the streets waving little flags and calling out greetings. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful memory!

My grandfather fought in WWII on the front lines moving through the Normandy area liberating the towns there. I just reread his war experiences yesterday and this photo brought tears to my eyes too. Thanks again!

Proud to be part French (my dad is French). We’re going to Normandy for our honeymoon in a few weeks and I’m so excited. It’s so beautiful there. Can’t wait to be back!
