Bastille Day

By Remy Benoit

   Despite the recent differences between the Bush Administration and the French, our two countries have a long, shared history.  That is particularly evident here in Louisiana.

   On July 14 the French celebrate Bastille Day.

   Last year the Military Academy at West Point was decorated with the Legion of Honor for its service to France in WWI.
   To read about Bastille Day and its observance: BASTILLE DAY/JULY 14: FRANCE WELCOMES WEST POINT MILITARY ACADEMY.
