King Philippe and Queen Mathilde participate in the ceremonies commemorating the Battle Of The Ardennes Forest otherwise known as the Battle Of The Bulge. I tip my hat to them for showing up even in a strong winter storm. Bravo Zulu to The King and Queen.
- The Battle of the Bulge was one of the bloodiest of the Second World War
- Saw thousands of Nazi troops descend on Ardennes without notice
- U.S. Army soldiers defended heavily forested region in Belgium
- Belgian royal family turned out to greet veterans and commemorate war
I am part Flemish by my Paternal Grandmother. Belgium may have issues these days. At least the Belgians still remember the actions of the 101st at Bastogne which kept the Wermacht from occupying their country a second time during the Second World War. I am proud of that heritage to this day.
God Save The King.
God Save The Queen
