U.S. Air Forces in Europe Elite Guard, Ramstein Air Base, Germany, as they prepare to present the colors at the Arc de Triomphe in downtown Paris, France, during the Memorial Day ceremony Sunday May 29, 2005.
It is impossibly pathetic but my first thought when I read that caption was a feeling of surprise that the French allowed American GI's on their property to present the colors.
I remember how the French denied some British survivors of D-Day the honor of setting foot on French soil to commemorate that event recently.
