November 11, 2020 – French Embassy sends a message for Veterans Day

The French Embassy in Washington DC has helped the Society dive into the history behind the medals presented in October and November 1921 to the World War I Unknown Soldier and have released a video for Veterans Day. Our two nations have a unique bond on the world stage, and as our first allies we honor this bond and look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder again in October 2021 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the selection of the Unknown Soldier.
