9th Air Force

From Andre' Defer, Belgian Writer:  "There is one thing you dare not forget and that you must keep eternally engraved in your heart.  It is the memory of those men who came from far away, from overseas and clung to the ground, fighting one against ten, falling down under bombing and shelling for the name of LIBERTY.

And when you will pass before a military cemetery, when you will see the little white crosses adorning the tombs of the soldiers of Baugnez, of Steumont, of Rochefort and of so many little villages of the Ardennes from the depths of your heart cry to them...
