Yeah, Paris is always crowded with Americans in August.


  1. Love it Fred!! These photos give me a chill.

  2. Well said.
    Last week I read an article in the NYT about the remains of WW1 battlefields and bunkers in the countryside of France where American soldiers fought and died. The French have long memories, he said and many will always be grateful.

  3. I must add Canadians to the list! What brave souls those Yankees and Canucks were, going to a foreign soil almost none of them had ever seen. Chutzpah!

  4. Hello,

    These archive photographs are incredible. Such a poignant reminder of events of the war which was meant to end all wars.......


As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
