We are taking some 17th Airborne Veterans to Belgium and Germany for the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge and Operation Varsity. The Veterans will participate in the Annual "Dead Man's Ridge" walk in Belgium and will visit Battle of the Bulge sites at Flamierge, Houmont, Morhet, Houffalize, Noville, and Bastogne. They will then visit Germany and see where their Division Landed near Wesel in the jump across the Rhine (Operation Varsity) and travel to Munster, the Division's final objective.
We will use contributions to fund travel expenses for the veterans.

We have made this trip in the past -- but this 75th Anniversary trip will most likely be the last opportunity we will have to get WWII Veterans back to the place where they battled for our freedom. In 2017 we took Charles Davis, below is his photo with the Belgian Friendlies at the 2017 Dead Man's Ridge Walk.
Below is Charles Davis with members of the Belgium Air Force in Morhet, Belgium. The medals he is wearing were given to him by the people of the Belgian towns he visited. Here he is at the 17th Airborne Monument in Flamierge, Belgium.
And here he is surrounded by school kids of St. Josephs in Bastogne, Belgium.
HELP US DO THIS AGAIN! WE WILL BE TRAVELING IN MARCH 2020 --THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY
