With Veteran's Day, the focus is on our service men and women that unselfishly serve our country. This brings me a very special love story that is near and dear to my heart. It wasn't until I discovered the long lost love letters my father wrote to my mother that was I able to piece together this very touching account of two young people separated by war.
I am not a French history expert or a Francophile. I am merely commenting on how a brief visit to France, a few conversations, and visiting some "concrete examples" of French gratitude and respect have altered my perceptions -- perhaps misconceptions -- of the French people and of their recent history.
