Leading the Sunset March as the Veteran of the Day alongside fellow veterans from Norway, the Netherlands, and Canada is both an honor and a tribute to those who sacrificed their lives crossing the Waal River. The march and the ceremony at the memorial stones are profoundly moving moments to remember our fallen comrades and to reflect on the value of peace today.

Peace requires continuous effort and investment from society and government, but the cost of war is far greater—lives, democracy, and freedom. I am deeply grateful to Team 31 for all they do to honor those who gave their lives in the crossing of the Waal River.
