    May 27, 1995 - During the siege of Sarajevo, the French Marine infantrymen from the 3rd RIMA led a bayonet charge to regain the Vrbanja bridge against the Serbs. Had they failed to do so, the Serbs could have taken the city.

    Absolutely incredible bravery. I have nothing less than the utmost respect for these men. You could tell that one now-Colonel (Former Captain) was still very impacted from it.
