The Netherlands honors my Uncle Walter

At a ceremony in the Netherlands Embassy in Washington D.C. on March 8, the Netherlands government honored my Uncle Walter and two other soldiers of the 325th Glider Infantry and 82nd Airborne for their courage during the WWII Market Garden campaign. Uncle Walter, my mother's oldest brother, died near Nijmegen in 1944. My brother George received the Orange Lanyard and certificate from Rear Admiral Sebo Hofkamp on behalf of our family.
