Happy V.E. Day!

Happy V.E. Day! 

Our friend posted this picture of his father on V.E. Day by the Arc de Triomphe today to celebrate — he's the soldier on the far left and served under Patton. 

Now his son, our friend Charles Rivkin, is revisiting the same spot today, as the U.S. Ambassador to France.
