Are you looking to relive the past? Then visit the Dropzones of the 82nd Airborne Division at Groesbeek! The the two dropzones at Groesbeek are very easy to visit today!

Dropzone “Nan” was originally assigned to the 505th PIR and dropzone “Tare” to the 508th. However, due to problems mid-air, the 2nd battalion of the 505th had to jump at dropzone “Tare”.

Here’s a map with an overview of locations I visit in the video below including the dropzones!

    Hi Joey

    I enjoyed your video and found the map helpful. My father, Hans Cramer, was attached to the 82nd as shown by this citation from Traces of War: “on September 17, 1944, assigned to the Medical Department of the 82nd American Airborne Division, after having landed from the air by glider near GROESBEEK, first to perform its task with the Division in a good manner and then, at his request, to participate in reconnaissance and combat patrols in the action area near NIJMEGEN.” Keep up the good work.
    With best wishes
