The alliance between France and the United States
And the French played a large part in helping the United States to win its independence from England, aided most notably by the French General LaFayette, who served with General George Washington.
Many years later, the United States got to return the favor when they arrived in France to help fight World War I. At that time, we said, "Lafayette, we are here!", a reference to the help that General Lafayette gave us during the revolutionary war. This alliance with France continued through World War II, and continues to this day.
Vive la France!
