OUR HISTORYREAD THE HISTORY OF NAIL
Back in the day
World War Two (WWII)
Why? because of two key reasons
First, the special bond formed between the people of Limburg and the USA in the wake of the liberation of this region in 1944-45 inter alia by American troops. There are still NAIL members today who, as children, personally witnessed the arrival of US troops in their towns, housed US soldiers in their homes, and care for the graves of the thousands of US soldiers interred in the war cemetery at Margraten. More graves of US soldiers have been “adopted” by ordinary citizens at Margraten than at any other US war cemetery. The fact that so many local people continue to visit Margraten, including Dutch schoolchildren, underscores the region’s continuing commitment to US-Dutch relations.
Second, the NATO and US military presence here in the region has established strong ties with US senior commanders, military personnel and civilians. Thanks to their continuous support and commitment the NAIL remains strong.
