Des membres de la section Rochambeau ont assisté à l'émouvante commémoration au cimetière américain de Normandie en souvenir du 80e anniversaire du Jour J, avec la présence d'un énorme nombre de vétérans. Ils sont venus une fois en 1944 et ils sont revenus à nouveau. Notre gratitude la plus sincère pour leur service.

That is still hard to image what those men gave so we could have freedom. ❤️

Thank you, ladies.

Thank you Sara Hillhouse Sallembien!

My father was on one of those ships. He fought through France from La Harve into Belgium and into and through Germany . His unit met the Russians at the Elbe River and wasn’t allowed to go further to Berlin.

My father-in-law was in that picture somewhere! Thank you for posting.

Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, Comte de Rochambeau (1725-1807)

The Comte de Rochambeau was a French nobleman and general appointed by King Louis XVI to lend vital assistance to General George Washington during the American War of Independence.

His remarkable tactical and leadership skills were instrumental in achieving victory for the American Patriots at the Battle of Yorktown, Virginia (October 19, 1781).

The courage of the French soldiers and sailors who fought alongside the American Patriots during the War of American Independence led to the birth of a new nation – the United States of America.
