Lest We Forget, The Battle of the Bulge,

LEST WE FORGET: About 1 million American World War II veterans are still alive. We should honor them this month, including those who fought in The Battle of the Bulge (16 December 1944 – 25 January 1945). The battle was   a major German offensive campaign launched through the densely forested Ardennes region of Wallonia in Belgium., France and Luxembourg on the western front. The battle involved about 610,000 American men of whom some 89,000 were casualties, including 19,000 killed. It was the largest and bloodiest battle fought by the United States in the Second World War.  That war is certainly a topic in “The Scattered Tribe: Traveling the Diaspora from Cuba to India to Tahiti & Beyond.” (Globe Pequot Press).  Check out my blog at “I Travel the World.” Follow me on twitter @bengfrank :
