Charles DeGaulle and Lyndon Johnson
In 1966 upon being told that Charles DeGaulle had taken France out of NATO
and that all U.S. Troops must be evacuated off of French soil, President Lyndon
Johnson told Secretary of State Dean Rusk to ask him about the cemeteries!
So at end of the meeting Dean did ask De Gaulle if his order to remove all
U S. troops from French soil also included the 60,000+ soldiers buried in
France from World War I and World War II. De Gaulle never answered.
