At the event, there were representatives from Belgium, Germany, Australia, Canada, and Britain, to commemorate the sacrifices of those in the air forces on both sides of the war. The Meuse-Argonne Offensive remains the largest, and most lethal, battle in U.S. military history.  It was the last battle of the Great War, and led to the deaths of 26,722 Americans, with some 95,786 soldiers wounded.
