Forgetfulness
Forgetfulness is a form of freedom
Great man
The great man has two hearts – one bleeds, the second one endures
Remembrance
Remembrance is a form of meeting
Possessions
You give but little when you give of your possessions. Its when you give of yourself that you truly give
Joy of sorrow
When either your joy of your sorrow becomes great, the world becomes small
Give unasked
It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding

Organisation

The Veterans for Lebanon Foundation is a small, 'flat' organisation, consisting of dedicated, practical people, chaired by Bert Kleine Schaars. Major General Retd, Hans van der Louw, acts as ambassador of the foundation.

The foundation has an active partnership with, among others, the Containers of Love Foundation and maintains close contacts with the Dutch Ministry of Defence.

The combination of a small board with relevant contacts at home and abroad makes the Veterans for Lebanon Foundation into a compact, decisive organization with minimal overhead.
