A fashion show featuring wounded warriors from France and the U.S. was the highlight of the French Armed Forces Gala held at La Maison Française in Washington, DC, to mark National Veterans and Military Families Month. Fourteen wounded warriors took to the catwalk decked out in elegant fashions for this unprecedented event, which honored the recovery and self-expression of the men and women who have given everything for our two nations.
The event was organized by the French Defense Attaché Office and ENCORE.
Many thanks to our generous sponsors – TriWest Healthcare Alliance, Airbus Defence and Space, Thales, Air France and Association Tégo – and to our charities – Terre Fraternité (French Army Wounded Support Association) and the Wounded Warrior Project.
And a big thank you to our models and to all of our servicemen and women!
