Welcome to the website of the Airborne Comittee Eerde

On September 17th 1944, the 501Parachute Infantry Regiment of the American 101st Airborne Division landed in the fields near the village of Eerde, in the south of the Netherlands.
The 501 Parachute Infantry Regiment participated in Operation "Market Garden" and liberated our village. 70 years later the people are still thankful to their liberators. Many liberators have returned to Eerde in the past years to visit friends and to commemorate their comrades at the monument near the windmill.

This website is designed to inform veterans of the 101st Airborne Division ­ - especially the 501 vets ­ - and others interested, about how the people of Eerde keep the memory of 1944 alive. 

The Airborne Comittee Eerde wants to offer its assistance to any veteran, relatives of veterans or others interested, who want to visit our region. If we can help with information, transportation or otherwise, we will be very glad to do so. If you have plans to visit Eerde, please contact us. 

The information on this website will frequently be updated.  
This website may contain some grammatical mistakes, because I am not a professional interpreter or webdesigner.
Please feel free to point out errors to me.
