In Honor and Remembrance of the Fallen:

Laying Wreaths… LEST WE EVER FORGET

Democrats Abroad France invites you to attend the Memorial Day ceremonies on Sunday, May 28th organized by the American Battle Monuments Commission at the different military cemeteries in France:

 

Suresnes Lafayette Esquadrille Memorial

Belleau Woods Oise-Aisne*

La Somme St. Avold

Epinal Meuse-Argonne

St. Mihiel Draguinan/Rhone

Normandy and again on June 6th

Here you will find an article about the infamous Plot E at the Oise-Aisne cemetery, the final resting place for “dishonored soldiers” and the story of Eddie Slovik, a WWII deserter and Emmett Till’s father, Luis Till who was accused of rape and murder.

If you would like to make a donation for any of the wreaths or to RSVP to reserve a VIP seat, please email [email protected] or text: 06 14 16 15 16.

We so much appreciate Democrats Abroad France 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 ceremonies.

THE ROSE OF NO MAN'S LAND

There's a rose that grows in no-man's land

And it's wonderful to see

Though it's sprayed with tears, it will live for years

In my garden of memory

 

It's the one red rose the soldier knows

It's the work of the Master's hand

'Neath the War's great curse stands a Red Cross nurse

She's the rose of no-man's land
