SARANAC LAKE - A three-minute news story on the late Dr. Rene Joyeuse aired Christmas Eve on Swiss national television.
The segment, which included scenes from Saranac Lake and Arlington National Cemetery, told the story of Joyeuse, who was born in Switzerland, won top honors for valor in World War II, lived in Saranac Lake for the last 25 years of his life and will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. He's believed to be the first Swiss-born man to be buried in Arlington.
The news feature includes interviews recorded earlier this month in Saranac Lake with Suzanne Joyeuse, the widow of Dr. Joyeuse and village Mayor Clyde Rabideau, who's written about Joyeuse's life in the Enterprise.
