Lest We Forget – Relive The Past

Meeting Arnhem Veterans!

September 20, 2017 joedemadio 1 Comment

At the Oosterbeek commemmorations I met Sam Miller who got me in contact with all these Arnhem veterans. He made my day an unforgettable one! These men are real heroes and I’m so glad to have met them. I met Denzil Cooper and Frank Ashleigh from the Glider Pilot Regiment. I also met with John Crosson, a 7th KSOB veteran who was a sniper at Arnhem. Luis Dimarco, 1st Para Battalion told us his story of the fightings at Arnhem. Man this was an amazing day.

Leaving without a picture of these men? Not on my watch! I’m so honored that I was able to shake their hands.
