    Dear members,

    For some years allready we have a tradition in Holland to put lights at the graves of our heroes in December.

    What a touching gesture.

    Thank you for keeping the memory of the fallen at the forefront of todays generations minds.

    Lest we forget.

    I agree the Dutch seem to always keep the memories of those who fought for or with them in their current lives..
