Why was an eagle sculpted after 65 years ?
Just to say thank you to our boys, on behalf of all the people of Bastogne.
This statue was made by a volunteer « Bastognard», Robert Remacle, who wants it to be close to the emblem of the 101st Airborne Division, the emblem of the United States of America.
It is dedicated to all the American soldiers whose units were surrounded in « the perimeter of Bastogne» from 21st to 26th December 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge. These units were organic or placed under the command of the glorious 101st Airborne Division.
