Margraten Memorial Day 2008

Today my daughter and I visited the grave of PFC Henry L. Hooper. Memorial Day 2008 and it was a sight to see with over 8300 graves and the flags waving in the wind. A few Ministers and Generals were flown in on a helo, bands playing music, and a very nice ceremony.

We put flowers on the grave, watched the uniformed (Army and Airforce) military guards while taking pictures. It was very humbling to see the older generation of Dutch fighters that participated in WWII walking around in their medals.
