Following is the wreath-laying in Zundert I missed Saturday 4 May between the museum in Aachtmal and the new plaque unveiling in Etten-Leur. Sorry!
Our excellent bugler Kevin Valentijn who honored us at so many ceremonies is pictured here.
Sunday 5 May we have breakfast and depart Breda for Aachen, Germany. Our stops today include Margraten American Military Cemetery in the Netherlands, M&Ms (Mathilde and Marcel Schmidt) Remembrance Museum in Belgium and the Henri-Chapelle American Military Cemetery in Belgium.
Hit the road troops!
There are about 8,000 U.S. soldiers buried at Margraten, NL.

Peggy pays respects to William Mayfield, her “Uncle Mabry”:
There are 1700 MIA names on the walls at Margraten. Only a few have since been found.
I’m going to publish this so you can’t say I’m not playing catch-up!
