Although I have no personal connection to the area I was glad I visited and paid my respects to the men that gave up their lives so that the Dutch might see an early end to tyranny.

We visited this beautifully maintained Cemetery during an Operation market Garden Tour. This is a wonderful resting place for all of the brave Soldiers and Airmen who lie there
