Photos 2009

Although it is 65 years ago since Operation Market-Garden liberated Nijmegen and the area, and although the youngest Veteran is about 83 years old, the area once again was overwhelmed with Veterans. I at least counted 3 buses with British Veterans and one bus with American Veterans. One of the British Veterans we know is 91 years old. He recently received a pacemaker and his condition is far from good.  But believe it or not, he once again visited Nijmegen and he once again came with his own car. This emphasizes their eager to visit Nijmegen and to share memories from the past. Nijmegen received their heroes as never before. The photos below clearly show this.
