You know, we Americans are fond of making fun of our French friends. We joke about how their flag is really white, they joke about how we’re too aggressive. We say that they’re so stuck up, they say we’re arrogant. We say they’re a bunch of wine-swilling drunks, they say we’re lazy. Well, apparently, those stereotypes don’t extend to the Military.
This letter, which appeared on a site called Naked Liberty on January 20 of this year, is a humbling account of how the French Military looks upon our own fighting men. Not only will it make you proud of our own boys, it might change your view of our friends in France.
Take a minute to read it. I guarantee it won’t be a waste of time.
