PARIS -- U.S. Air Force Maj. James Gingras, French Air Force Academy exchange officer, left, speaks with his fellow Air Officers Commanding from the French Air Force Academy before marching in the 2012, 14th of July parade in Paris. The 14th of July, known in English by Bastille Day, is the French equivalent of the American 4th of July. It commemorates the attack on the Bastille on July 14, 1989, which preceded the French revolution. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Benjamin Wilson)
