Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S.

As a French kitty, I was told by my French human that it was important not to forget that we were free today, because people, many of them American, fought and continue to fight for our freedom.

So we wanted to simply say thank you.

Memorial Day, France, United States, Texas Cat in New York

The picture used in this montage in honor of American soldiers was taken by my human on Memorial Day 2011, at the Suresnes American cemetery, near Paris.

Every year, the city hall of Suresnes, along with representatives of the American Battle Monuments Commission organize a special ceremony to honor American soldiers who fell on French territory, to say thank you and remember, and to renew the friendship between our two countries.

  2. What a lovely ceremony the cemetery holds in honor of all fallen heroes and the long-standing friendship between France and the USA…..That makes me all warm inside! I hope you Texas (France) and me (Sam) will have a long-standing friendship too! :D

  3. As you know, my father-in-law served in France in WWII, so I’ll say thank you for him for this meaningful post. Love Texas and Little K included in the picture, showing their respect.
