Here we are at the Mardasson monument .

 

Don is receiving a medal from the city of Bastogne on behalf of A-Company , 506th , 1st B.

 

The alderman speeched , than Filip speeched .

Don was really touched and took the medal on bahalf of those who could not make it to Bastogne anymore .

Then I speeched ....

 

It was a great moment .
