First of all I want to thank my wife for keeping our businesses running when I'm not in Belgium. Without her, I could've only dreamt of doing these tours. I'd also like to thank my daughter who studies in Pittsburgh and has been assisting me during my journeys in the USA with things like general questions or booking a flight. She is also the one who helped me get this website up and running.

On this page, I would like to thank the people and businesses who helped me in one way or another during the trip. Whether they helped me find interesting places and people to map the tour or offered to show me memorial sites and monuments.

Thank you for all your help. God bless.
