Hi, Tom! As I replied above to someone else, this piece is strictly about July 4 i.e. the Independence Day in DC parade that had a distinct French flavor this year.

As for the picture, apologies but that’s all I could find plus it fits in with the whole US/FR allyship undertone, an allyship that is always on my mind.

This being said, if you happen to have a better photo, please do send it through (email in bio) and I’ll very happily credit you.

As you undoubtedly surmised, military hardware isn’t my forte but I’m all for learning about it so feel free to drop some knowledge below. Should you write a piece about it, please do tag me.

Thanks for reading! 🤓
