Aisne Marne American Cemetery: French Army Troll Trump over Canceled Visits

A century and a certain change after the bug requires ceasefire drives across European tributaries, the French launched a salvo.

“It’s raining, but it does not matter,” said the French Army on Twitter on Twitter along with a photo of a rainforest recruitment creeping through an obstacle. “We are still motivated.”

The French trolley almost president Trump two days after he canceled a planned visit to Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, apparently due to bad weather. The highlight of the Green Hillstone High School marks the final restraint of 2,289 American troops, many of whom were killed in the battle of Belleau Wood. The names of 1 060 more that were never found are inscribed on a wall there.

The White House interrupted the visit, as Trump would have aboard the president’s helicopter Marine One, after it had been determined that the conditions “near zero”, “said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, among critics and speculation that Trump was not motivated to join other world leaders there by car instead.

“President Trump did not want to cause such unexpected disturbances in the city and its people,” says Sanders.

The cemetery is 50 miles northeast of Paris and it was not clear why alternative roads – usually planned for high-profile events – not used in this case.

The weather did not prevent the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Fran Crike President Emmanuel Macron from visits other places around Paris.

Avg. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., Chairman of the Common Managers and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly visited the cemetery on Saturday – one day and a place that was stored deeply in American military history.

Saturday was the Marine Corps 243th anniversary, and the men – both Marines – went to the cemetery on the edge of Belleau Wood, which quickly became the center of Marine Lore after the 1918 battle.

A brigade of navalists went into two army departments in the closing war months and fought brutally hand-to-hand combat in the forest, which sometimes contradicts swirling poison gas. The Germans sent several waves in an unsuccessful attempt to loosen the Navy during the battle, which lasted almost a month.

Four days after German revocation, the French 6th Army issued an order mentioning Belleau Wood “Bois de la Brigade de Marine”.

And in April, the Macron White House gave an excerpt from Belleau Wood, where he said “the blood [of Americans] was played to defend France.”

German troops named Marines “Teufel dog” – devil dogs. The name stuck Bulldogs has become the corpse’s mascot.

Now marineists visiting the cemetery and battlefield are drawn to the village of Belleau just outside, where a moss-stained bulldog fountain spills water from the mouth.

It’s common for Marines to drink from it, to tribute to the Americans who never left the forest.
