The October 2022 newsletter of Paris Post 1 details the August activities of its post members, who fanned out across France to take part in commemoration ceremonies of the aftermath of D-Day in 1944. Locations included: - Sucie-en-Brie - Troyes - Issy-Les-Moulineaux - Montélimar - Drôme - Draguignan Legion, Auxiliary and Sons members all participated. And the ceremonies didn’t just take place in the small towns; says the newsletter, “The site of the Rhone American Cemetery and Memorial in France was selected because of its historic location along the route of the U.S. 7th Army's drive up the Rhone Valley. It was established on Aug. 19, 1944, after the 7th Army's surprise landing in southern France.”
