Touching: WW II Vet Uses Virtual Reality To Revisit The French Town He Helped Liberate

November 9, 2016


In honor of Remembrance Day, this is a video of 91-year old World War II vet Frank Mouqué using a virtual reality headset to revisit Armentières, a small town in northern France he helped liberate in 1944. The current mayor even gives him a medal for his service and a group of schoolchildren sing him 'The Mademoiselle From Armentières'. It was all very, very touching and a solemn reminder that World War III is gonna suck.

Hit the jump for the video, it really is worth a watch.

Thanks to n0nentity, who wants to use virtual reality to visit the moon and live there forever.

    It's sad that the world only rewards the doctors working at the bottom of the cliff and never the guys building the fence at the top of it.
