At the Tarn there will be special commemoration ceremonies May 26th-28th honoring the 80th Anniversary of the Founding of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services)—from which the CIA was created in 1947.  The wreath laying by the Toulouse Chapter will be Saturday, May 28th.

We so much appreciate DAF for continuing to perpetuate this tradition and also the members of Democrats Abroad France who will be representing us and laying wreaths. These are very moving events with flyovers and US military bands at some of the ceremonies.
