A tribute for WWII veterans in New York [fr]
The association "The French Will Never Forget", established eleven years ago to pay tribute to the United States for their role in the liberation of France during World War II organized on June 6th, 2014 with the French Embassy in Washington and the Consulate General of France in New York, a major event commemorating the D-day.
It took place around the statue of Liberty, the very symbol of Franco-American friendship and the shared values of the United States and France.
In the presence of one ship of the French Navy near the Liberty Island, three French military helicopters released 1 million rose petals over the Statue of Liberty to honor Americans who died for France.
Large French and American Flags have also been deployed at the foot of the Statue in the presence of many veterans.
