Photo Essay: Western Front Association–USA Branch 2007 Tour

The Webmaster had the honor of leading the second half of the Western Front Association–USA Branch’s 2007 Battlefield Tour in the Meuse-Argonne and St. Mihiel Sectors;  And the memories of this trip came back very vividly when participant Kevin Drake recently shared his photos of the tour.  Readers who travel to France regularly know that the country is both a place of great devastation (during the war) and great beauty.  Kevin has captured this wonderfully and artistically in the pictures below; and the webmaster thanks him for his willingness to share the photos.
