Post 9-11 French-American Friendship Event, Sechault, France

Friday, September 14, 2001

Dear American Friends,

After the tragedy which touched your country, all the French elected members of the Argonne decided to organize a special ceremony in Sechault to the monument of the 369th Infantry (15th New York Regiment) which took place on Friday, September 14 in the presence of all the French Authorithies, the American representative of the ABMC and the children of Sechault. This ceremony was not the only one, other numerous ceremonies took place in all France. The enclosed photos mark so the friendship which binds our two countries in these terrible moments.

God Bless America and France !
