Plans for Operation Torch are materialising.
The friendship between the World War II liberators and the Dutch people has stood like a rock since 1944.
Many a veteran re-visited his "second home" in Holland. The Dutch people have always been, and still are, not only interested in,
but grateful towards their liberators - whether they be American, British, Polish or Canadian. They are welcomed with open arms.

Now that veterans are becoming more and more unable to attend the liberation ceremonies and festivities, a bridge needs to be build
in order to continue the friendship which originated in WWII. One of the main objectives of Operation Torch is to organise a trip for
(associate) members of the 101st Airborne Division Association to visit the Operation Market Garden area in September 2006.
T
he invitation to visit is now extended to younger veterans, family members of WWII veterans and anyone interested in the history.

The main objectives of OPERATION TORCH are:

remembering the sacrifice
and
keeping the memory alive
