A parade in Maastricht, Netherlands, honored U.S. World World II veterans, Sept. 14, 2019. Soldiers assigned to the Army's 30th Infantry Division helped liberate the city in 1944. Four men who served in the division traveled to the Netherlands with the North Carolina National Guard to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Limburg province; Maastricht is the province’s capital. The NCNG’s 30th Armored Brigade Combat Team traces its lineage to the 30th Infantry Division and guardsmen’s uniforms still bear the same unit patch.

Veterans John O'Hare and Tony Jaber talk about their experience in 1944 and the welcome they received 75 years later.
