Roger sent us a second report: “This near Son, Netherlands  where my dad jumped in the Market Garden invasion September 17th 1944. My dad Jim Martin and I rode in a convoy of military vehicle.  This GPW Jeep belongs to Han Pulles. My friend  Kevin and I rode in Han’s Jeep with his son Barry. Dad road in one of the trucks. We had a great time. Thanks to Han and his son Barry for taking us along for the ride!”

    Thanks for sharing Roger!Awesome that you and your father are able to be there!A shame that I live fairly close to you and have not taken the time to meet you or your father yet.

    It was an honour for us to be able to drive you and your father around that day. It’s the least we can do for someone who put his life on the line for people he didn’t know. Thanks to men like him we are still able to live in freedom. For that we are forever gratefull.

    Barry and Han
