Thank you for this and for the Friedenberg story as well. It never hurts to recall those who made such sacrifices so that we might continue to live in something approximating a free society, nor to remember why we owe them a debt of gratitude, which we were, in many instances, unable directly to repay.

Pax et bonum,

The pic of the line of Allied tanks in liberated Paris shows free French forces (note the tricolor insignia on the tanks and the red caps of the crewmen).  Eisenhower wisely sent his Free French units into Paris as the first liberating forces.  Big morale victory for the Allies.
