A U.S. soldier based in Germany says it represents the unwillingness of American forces to give up in the face of adversity.
That’s how 41 year-old Stephen Sims describes the Battle of the Bulge. Sims, as well as other Americans and Belgians are gathering in the Ardennes region of Belgium to mark the 70th anniversary of one of the biggest battles of World War II.
62 year-old Belgian Jean-Claude Klepper and his 15 year-old daughter Aurelie dressed up like World War II GIs for the occasion. Klepper says he’s there to honour the many American soldiers who came to defend Europe.
