It’s a big weekend in France and while mainstream journalists are busy putting their tedious political spins on the events, we think about other things.
From U.S. Embassy French Twitter
” …Over 68,000 U.S. service members are buried or memorialized at American cemeteries in France.”

“…Armistice Day takes place on 11 November each year and marks the end of the First World War. It is a day of commemoration, an occasion to remember the some 8.5 million soldiers who died across the world during the 1914–18 war – as well as those lost in the conflicts that followed.”
Younger Veterans, welcome home and enjoy your day.
