Don’t ask me why there’s so many German posts today. Basically, I found a collection on the Battle of the Bulge but I didn’t want to bypass the fact that Germany is now our Allies. Then I found this story while putting together a post on the Bundeswehr.

“A Soldier from the U.S. Army 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, headquartered in Ansbach, Germany, embraces a German soldier who he helped rescue from a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan during the opening ceremony of ESPN’s live broadcast of a special Veterans Day Sportscenter in Grafenwoehr, Germany, Nov. 11, 2010. It was the first time the German and American Soldiers had seen each other since the rescue mission in April, 2009.”
