1. The AAF forum will close permanently on December 1, 2017. I no longer have the time to manage a project like this, obviously, or give it the attention that it deserves. I still think fondly of the early days in 1998 when this all got started. A small, but eager group of tech savvy 1st and 2nd generation descendants made great friends with the last of the WWII veterans thru the newfangled internet. They're all gone now. It's time for me to turn the page. Thanks for being along for part of the ride. I'm sorry it got so bumpy in the end.

    Perhaps also, you would like to comment on this posting from Facebook?

    This is the new website from Mr. Jan de Wilde. After years of bad behaviour against some of our employees/foundation and several others, (including employees from Henri-Chapelle cemetery) and taking all kind of information and pictures from us and others, using a self claimed copyright on it, we decided to take action against his behaviour. We warned all our friends on facebook, but also facebook for abusing the rules of copyright and wrong attitude towards lots of people. We were not alone in this, because more people decided to make him stop. Sadly, it only worked for a short moment, because his old page and new page are online on Facebook again (he took the self claimed copyright away but puts a red or blue message trough pictures which says "courtesy of J. de Wilde")..but now he also has his own website which the link is attached to this message. Again we want to warn everybody for him and what he does.

    We will keep warning everybody for this person untill he and others like him understand what it means to share and how to behave in honoring those we died for our freedom.

    Best regards to all our fields of honor friends.

    Dear Sir,this message placed by that person is an insult

    Dear Sir,this accusation is an complete insult.I have the Facebook page aalready for some years online. This kind of messages were already put on another forum,but the photo's on my Facebook page are photos that I did get from the relatives,and this group does not even have those photos. Besides that they do forget that also the same relatives that provide them with photo's also shared them with me.Another thing is that one of their do called members did great me with the words "your days are counted".Another remarkable statement in the message is that warning everyone,till I known what it means to share photo's,well I only share photo's and information with Veterans,Veterans Associations and Relatives. It seems obvious that that is the whole reason why they are still trying to harrasment me. Please can you contact me and tell me the Facebook page that they placed this message on. By the way,taking steps to stop me,is a threat..It start to enjoy me that they keep on going instead of Crying like little children,they should behave like adults,and mind their own business.

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Dear Jaap, first question you want my answer in Dutch or English.
    You are calling me an F A the same Jan de Wilde that you left a book for at Margraten Cemetery,2 years ago. And the same Jan de Wilde,whom you send a photo from Lt Allison,for his website,and the same Jan de Wilde with whom you had several phone conversation.So,instead of starting to call me all kind of names,it would be more polite to apologize.
