3e REI: 2022 Victory in Europe Day

In French Guiana of South America, on May 8, 2022, the French Foreign Legion’s 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment (3e REI) commemorated Victory in Europe Day. The ceremony took place in Kourou, its garrison town.

Like the other regiments of the Foreign Legion, the 3e REI commemorated last Sunday the 77th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. In the presence of Mrs. Bruno-Frédoc, first deputy mayor of Kourou, the regimental commanding officer laid a wreath at the foot of the city’s War Memorial in memory of all those soldiers, including legionnaires, who died for France. At the end of the ceremony, naturalization decrees were handed over to four deserving legionnaires.
