Webmaster’s Introduction: The story of Laurie Button, her “adopted” Doughboy, Walter “Wave” Miguel, and their ties to the Village of Louppy-sur-Loison is one of the most interesting stories to emerge from the 2018 Centennial Commemorations. As a result of Laurie’s persistent writing from the U.S. and willing supporters in France, the parties involved organized a Commemoration Ceremony on 10 November that filled the local church and chateau. Those of us who were present will not forget this day of Franco-American unity! This story is first told from the perspective of Laurie Button, and next from the perspective of French historian Antoine Collot. It is also well-illustrated with both period and current photos.
