In 1936, an eighteen-year-old Bobby Davis spent a summer in France, during which he met and fell in love with Brigitte. They had seen I'm No Angel starring Mae West in the cinema before Bobby returned to America. He left on August 29 via train, but remained in contact with Brigitte through weekly letters until war broke out three years later.
He returned to Sainte Claire as a lieutenant in the US 5th Armored Infantry under Captain Miller on September 25, 1944. There, he was reunited with a now pregnant Brigitte, who had joined the French Resistance. (VOY: "The Killing Game", "The Killing Game, Part II")
