3 US heroes anointed French Citizenship
“It was important for us to become citizens because we have such a connection with France now. We’ve been back four or five times since the terrorist attack,” Alex Skarlatos
January 31, Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, the American heroes who stopped an attack on the Amsterdam-Paris Thalys train route, became naturalized French citizens in a ceremony at the Consulate of France in San Francisco. “Welcome to the French family,” consul General Emmanuel Lebrun Damiens told them as he gave them their certificates of naturalization.
The new French citizens acted their own roles in the Clint Eastwood movie “The 15:17 to Paris” which recreates their actions.
