When France does something anti-American we are certainly one of the first to let people know about it. However, when they do something like the event, “FRANCE WILL NEVER FORGET,” it should be made just as public and praised. To those who took part in this special event to symbolize the friendship between France and the US soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their freedom, we say Viva la France.

Also, watch the moving video from Omaha Beach. This is a must see.
Pajama Media also has a statement from the French Embassy regarding the event.
2500 PEOPLE GATHER ON OMAHA BEACH IN NORMANDY TO FORM A “HUMAN CHAIN” OF GRATITUDE AND HONOR THE FALLEN AMERICAN HEROES WHO LIBERATED FRANCE DURING WW II
“Our goal is, once again, to demonstrate the deep respect and gratitude of the people of France, for their recovered freedom thanks to America’s extreme sacrifices during the Second World War and which no one can, or will ever forget.” declared the co-founders of the organization.
The site of Omaha Beach was chosen not only for its history, but also because of its symbolism. The beach is located nearby the main American cemetery where thousands of American soldiers who died in this war have been laid to rest.
