Troop Carrier monument at DZ/LZ Son, Holland
On Sunday 16 September 1944 a Troop Carrier monument was inaugurated at the drop- and landing zones at Son, just north of Eindhoven.
This monument commemorates the part of the men of the Ixth Troop Carrier Command during operation Market Garden on the missions towars this particular drop- and landing zone.
The area was used by six Troop Carrier Groups to fly in the 101st Airborne Division. See more about the flights here.

The idea for this monument, the project, and everything connected with it was executed by the Remember September 1944 Foundation.. The website is here:

Newspaper article from Eindhovens Dagblad. The title is:”Freedom is litterly brought”.  This because the liberation came from the air, and it had to be transported from England to Holland.
