Battle of Belleau Wood …Never Forget! “The first large-scale battle fought by American soldiers in World War I begins in Belleau Wood, northwest of the Paris. In late May 1918, the third German offensive of the year penetrated the Western Front to within 45 miles of Paris.” At the end of the battle, the blood of over 10,000 Americans soaked the ground.
In April 2018, French President Emmanuel Macron, President of France, gave the American people an oak sapling from Belleau Wood. He said, “It’s where the blood of Americans was spilled to defend France.” Thank you President Macron.
“When you say ‘NEVER FORGET’
to a Veteran, you are implying that as an American, you are in it with them”
