The Heggen family would like to thank the veterans and their families for what they did during the Battle of the Bulge 63 years ago: You gave your precious young years to help us defeat the Nazism and gave us our freedom back; you fought for our freedom and liberty of expression - 2 most important things in a democratic world. We will never forget this. Thank you to all of you. Vincent Heggen and his Family. P.S. The picture of my family was taken during our visit of the Grand Canyon. Regards from Belgium.
