Today I remember the Anniversary of the Liberation of our little town, Fosses-la-Ville, on Sept 7th, 1944. (U.S. VIIth Corps of General J.L. Collins)
I was not born, though :) !

Photo taken at the same place in front of my house.

Unfortunately the road has been closed due to rework, so It's not worth putting my jeep and a poster in front of our house.

In 1944.
