The World Through My Eyes

By Marlieske

Take a parachute and jump...

We have been to the para dropping in honor of 75th anniversary Operation Market Garden... The American war veterans Jim Martin (98) and Vincent Speranza (94). As paratroopers, they played a major role in the liberation of Brabant (the province where I live). 75 years later they did that jump again. On the exact same drop zone in Eerde where Operation Market Garden began in 1944. Watch the (maybe last) jump of Jim and Vincent in the video at Omroep Brabant 
A day with a smile, goosebumps and sometimes a tear of emotions...If you have the time, please take a look at the many more pictures in the extra....

I'm a very poor blipper at the moment... my apologies for that! We are busy celebrating our vacation time... But many thanks for all your kind and lovely comments and stars for my yesterday’s blip! Xxx
