Jim Hennessey: Small world ? I also was in Paris for VJ day and arrived on a 5 day

R&R just a day prior to VJ day. It sure was one wide open town for a few days with

the celibrations. I stayed at the Hotel Trans Atlantic along with many other G.I.'s..

Was in a subway car (Metro ??) and heard a lot of civilians cheering, one had a newspaper and I could read the BIG headlines "Finne Le Guerre" . This news meant

I had survived the war and no chance of a trip to the PTO. Thank God. Had enough

in the ETO. Then just waiting to go home to NJ.
