MARNES-LA-COQUETTE, France – A ceremony outside of Paris is honoring the lives of the American pilots who volunteered to fight for France during World War I.
The commemoration, which is due to include a fly-by featuring French fighter jets, an American bomber and a biplane, marks the centenary of the formation of the Lafayette Escadrille on April 20, 1916 — almost a full year before the U.S. entered the war.
