Miss South

Anthem «The Boys and Bastogne»

Ms. Jeanne South, an American lady, who has settled in Wiltz,and whose husband is working in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, was so moved by what had been done by the people of Bastogne for these young Americans, that she wanted to participate in this praise by composing a beautiful song, «the Boys and Bastogne». She donated it to the city of Bastogne and to the 101st Airborne. This song is played annually on the occasion of the Memorial Day, sometimes also during visits of veterans.
