Supporting US-Russia Relations through Commemoration of Shared Acheivements
Sixty-five years after the United States and the Soviet Union stood side-by-side amid deep economic recession and a world at war, Sgt. Joseph Beyrle stands out as the highest example of that partnership, having fought for both countries. Joe's story has particular resonance today. Facing another economic crisis and conflicts around the world, the alliance between Russia and the United States is more important than ever.
This project is focused on an exhibit that will travel to St. Petersburg, Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Pskov. Seminars on past, present and future US-Russia cooperation will take place in conjunction with the exhibit'sopenings at various locations. The story of Joseph Beryle, just one small example of the allying of our forces during WWII, highlights this cooperation and provides a unique opportunity to discuss how our twocountries can work together for the benefit of all.
"Today, on the eve of 65th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, we humbly stand in admiration of the feats of Joseph Beryle, a soldier of two armies, and the feats of millions of Russians, Americans and citizens of other nations, who spilt their blood and sacrificed their lives to secure a peaceful world for future generations."
Sergei Lavrov,Minister of Foreign Affairsof the Russian Federation
"Joseph Beyrle's story is full of true heroism and represents a separate chapter in the closely intertwined history of our two nations. His sense of duty to his country and his respect toward allies and the sacrifices made by all will live on as a testament to future generations."
Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State of the United States of America
