Photo report Bastogne nuts weekend 2019

The Bastogne nuts weekend was this year on December 14 and 15. We were already present on Friday with the veterans in the Bastogne War Museum and for the fireworks display in the Bastogne Barracks. The next day the Bastogne Historical Walk took place and there was a light show at the Mardasson that evening. No matter how beautiful the show was, it is open for discussion if it fits in a memorial weekend. Fortunately there were the necessary commemorations that same day. Including one in the pouring rain at the 326th Airborne Medical Company Monument in Sainte-Ode. The weekend also brought us to the big re-enactment event in Hardigny where a lot of re-enactors had come together.
