The last day of Operation Torch 2009 was to be a special one First of all, it was time to pack up and make sure luggage and travellers were on the bus.
Before the group was divided, a big hand for the greatest busdriver in the world: Jos! THANK YOU for your care and safe driving.
Harry and Christian, our guides, took the group to Son, to the edge of the DZ and LZ North of Eindhoven
To the farm of Mr Van Overvelt, who opens his heart and house to the 101

A stop at the monument for temperary cemetery “WOLFSWINKEL”, along Hell’s Highway
But let’s go back a little. Part of the group was invited to the Freedom Lecture

During lunch, General Petraeus came over to meet with the group
A real honor to meet with one of the great men of our times. And a delight To be able to coin him first….
