I now have Internet and i am trying to find out as much as possible about them but its very hard to find anything. I would like to know everything about them so i can ex plane it to my children who s in that grave and what kind of men they were.

  3. Hello We are Andy & Monique and we are from the Netherlands. I am very interested in WW2 and everything that is related to that. I read a lot of books , watch great documentaries, and collect as lot as movies from WW2 as possible. We adopted 3 graves of brave soldiers on the American cemetery in Margraten , the Netherlands. We caretakers of the graves at the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial ( Margraten ) are the ones who will see to it that the men and women buried there will not be forgotten I go there often with my wife and children to see that their graves are well being taken care for. I always put flowers on their grave. I now have Internet and i am trying to find out as much as possible about them but its very hard to find anything. I would like to know everything about them so i can ex plane it to my children who s in that grave and what kind of men they were. Now i am always looking at their graves and try to imagine who they were. I am trying the find a face or story behind the grave of theis brave men, but i run out of help So i hope i am at the right address. Greets Andy p.s.
