Embassy Hosts Gala for Defense Attachés
On the evening of November 15, the Embassy of France hosted military officers from around the world during the annual Defense Attachés Association gala.
The event gathered the military officers assigned to represent their countries’ defense interests in the United States. The black-tie occasion featured dinner, speeches, and ballroom dancing to live music.
Brigadier General Bruno Caïtucoli, a French Air Force officer who heads France’s military representation at the Embassy, lauded the organizers’ efforts, which required months of preparations. He said "this event could not take place at a better moment when you look at France’s role in military operations and cooperation at large with its American allies."
