English: An M-8 "Greyhound" armored scout car of the US Army passes under the Arc de Triomphe after the liberation of Paris in August 1944. The identifying numbers of the vehicle were censored for security reasons, making it difficult to identify the unit. They appear to read "20X 20R-1" or "28X 28R-1", which would indicate a vehicle of the reconnaissance troop of the 20th or 28th Infantry Divisions. However, the image is captioned here as showing a vehicle of Troop B, 102nd Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron, which was attached to the French 2nd Armored Division. Both the 102nd Cavalry and 20th Infantry were present at the liberation and in the parade that followed on the 29th.
Türkçe: Zafer Takı'nın önünde ABD Kara Kuvvetleri'ne bağlı M8 Greyhound zırhlı arabası (Paris'in Kurtuluşu'nu kutlamak için 29 Ağustos 1944 tarihinde düzenlenen Zafer Töreni'nden sonra çekildi.)
