Memorial Day in France

Here’s video from the 2011 Memorial Day ceremony at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery, just east of Romagne, France. I attended the 2009 ceremony at the cemetery where 14,246 American troops lie. It was very moving, especially to travel through the village of Romagne where the Stars and Stripes hung at every window.

This video begins with the French national anthem (much better sung than in “Casablanca”). Following is Taps. Tears are running down my face.
