France played such a key role and was such a focal point of both World Wars that I am sure this day has enormous significance.

Happy VE day, a somber and joyous day! I'm looking forward to Memorial Day, our first holiday since January (too long of a period).

Victoire 1945! I've often imagined what it must have been like to be in Paris in May 1945.
