An American infantry Major, James E. White, wrote home and explained that there was still much to do six days after the armistice.

In this letter, that was printed seven months later, he relayed his experiences as one of the first Allied officers to have entered the formerly occupied city of Metz, in order to evacuate wounded American prisoners:

"The following Tuesday the grand entry of the French troops took place, but no welcome was more spontaneous than than that given to the group of American officers who on that Sunday peacefully invaded the fortress of Metz."
