Brunssum, the Netherlands – Led by the Deputy Commander, Lieutenant General Juan Campins, a team of JFC Brunssum personnel were delighted to participate in the third Brunssum Veterans Day, Saturday 15 September.
At a short but dignified remembrance service on the Lindeplein, General Campins (on behalf of JFC Brunssum) and Brigadier General van der Voet (on behalf of the Dutch community at JFC Brunssum), laid wreaths alongside those of the Brunssum Veterans Association, the Mayor of Brunssum and the Netherlands America Institute Limburg.
A multi-national platoon from JFC Brunssum participated in a parade comprised, amongst others, of local marching bands, veterans associations and scouting organisations; a number of old-timer military vehicles also joined in the parade. The official salute was taken by Lieutenant General Campins.
On completion of the parade a wonderful social event was conducted throughout the afternoon where friendships were both forged and renewed.
