Foundation Groesbeek Airborne Friends
The Second World War has left a big mark in the recent history of the Netherlands, Europe and in fact the whole world. As part of the liberation of Europe heavy fighting took place in Groesbeek and its surrounding. First in September 1944 during Operation Market Garden, later in February 1945 as the starting point of Operation Veritable.

Our purpose is to keep this part of history alive and to make it tangible for future generations. For this we develop various activities and collaborate with other interested organisations.

We organise and participate in several yearly commemorations, such as Memorial Day and Remembrance Day. Throughout the years we contributed to the realisation of several monuments in Groesbeek to mark and commemorate specific events of the war. As part of these activities we welcomed many veterans, their familiy and members of the armed forces in Groesbeek. Furthermore, we try to involve the younger generation through educational activities.

Holland Chapter
As a result of our efforts in welcoming the veterans of the 82nd Airborne Division, the Groesbeek Airborne Friends form the Holland Chapter of the C-47 Club of the 82nd Airborne Division Association since 1981.
