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.
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.
