Lafayette Escadrille Memorial 100th anniversary ceremony

PARIS – French and American military and civilian representatives attend the Lafayette Escadrille Memorial 100th anniversary ceremony in Marnes-la-Coquette, France, April 20, 2016, during a ceremony honoring the 268 Americans who joined the French Air Force before the U.S. officially engaged in World War I. Airmen from the U.S. Air Force and their French counterparts, along with civilians from both countries, paid tribute to the men who served and the sacrifices of the 68 American airmen who died fighting with the French in World War I. The memorial highlights the 238-year alliance between the U.S. and France with their long history of shared values and sacrifice. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Tech. Sgt. Joshua DeMotts/Released)
