French and American soldiers remove a makeshift fence from around the grave of Lieutenant Quentin Roosevelt (son of former President Theodore Roosevelt) who was killed during aerial combat in skies over Chamery, France, on June 14, 1918. He was buried with honors, in a battlefield grave, marked with a simple wooden cross, by German fliers. Now American and French soldiers are seen placing a new fence around the grave, along with a new cross and headstone, engraved in French. They also place floral pieces on the grave.
