Lt. Col. Eric Tilley quote
Lt. Col. Eric Tilley, referring to allied Operation Market Garden. U.S. Soldiers and Dutch citizens celebrated the epic battle to liberate the Netherlands from Nazi occupation.

The Dutch citizens afford us the sincerest degree of respect and gratitude. They truly are thankful and understand the sacrifices made as they celebrate the 63 years of liberation that grew out of that fateful operation in 1944.
