Bastille Day Celebration, 100 Years Fighting with the French! Our Nurses saved the Wounded.

Today, 200 Americans walked in the Bastille Day Parade in Paris. Much as our WWI soldiers did numerous times before and after that first world war, our men looked proud to celebrate our democracy.
Hoping you will see those clips on TV and on Twitter, I'm also eager to post a few of my newest photographs willingly offered me by the Army Medical Museum in San Antonio at Fort Sam Houston.
Here are the first of approximately 100 more which I will soon post on the National WWI Centennial Commission website. The annotations describe the photos.
In their uniforms, they look ready to go, don't they?
