The above information was received from
Ronan Urvoaz, who resides  in The Hague, The Netherlands and first posted Jan 17, 2007. 

"I was born in Brest, France scene of one the most terrible battles during the Western European Campaign in 1944. I have been living abroad for most of my life but I have never failed to honor the sacrifice of U.S. Servicemen who fought to liberate my home town.

There is a project of building a memorial dedicated to those who paid the ultimate price to secure our freedom. Located in Fort Montbarey, we are still negotiating with the local authorities.

I attend commemorations of the liberation of Brest each year, and I place flowers and a card in remembrance of fallen soldiers. The cards are kept in the Fort Montbarey Museum as a permanent reminder for future generations. A picture is more powerful than an engraved name."
