Your service gave me a chance to live.

I am grateful for all veterans regardless of the time period or war zone in which they defended us. But I have a special place in my heart for the Allied Forces who fought during World War II.

Without you, both our families would have been destroyed in concentration camps.

Without you, our family members would not have been liberated from Auschwitz.

Without you, our family members would not have been liberated from the Japanese concentration camps in the Dutch-Indies.

Without you, all our grandparents would not have survived the camps.

Without you, our parents would not have survived the camps.

Without you, our parents would not have married.

Without you, we would not be alive.

Without you, I would not be here.

Your service gave us a chance to live.

Thank you.
