My grandmother told me a touching story about Thanksgiving 1944. She lived in a village just outside of the military Camp de Mourmelon, Champagne, and hosted a couple of American officers from the division settled there. Before Thanksgiving, they asked the permission to receive four other officers to celebrate there with their own military turkey, and my grandma let them almost all of the house. Some of these guests occasionally came back to visit; one of them really had a crush on my uncle, 1-year-old at that time, who seemingly reminded him his daughter left at home. But three weeks later, all of the officers went away in a hurry; some promised to write, but didn't.


What is moving is that several of these officers probably died in the following days. They were the 101st Airborne, sent in emergency to Bastogne. The moment can be seen in "Band of brothers".


In memoriam... :salute:
