    “Nuts!” Night
    In Commemoration of the 70th Anniversary
    of the Battle of the Bulge

    December 11, 2014



    On December 16, 1944, the Battle of the Bulge began on the Western Front of World War II, and lasted until January 25, 1945, inflicting heavy casualties. During the Siege of Bastogne, despite overwhelming odds, U.S. Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe responded to a request to surrender the town with the one word answer, “Nuts!” This marked the turning point of the Battle of the Bulge for the American troops and on December 30, 1944, General McAuliffe was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by General Patton for his actions at Bastogne.

    On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, the American Club of Brussels invites you to “Nuts!” Night to remember the courage and indomitable spirit of those who sacrificed so much during the Battle of the Bulge. The event features a commemoration ceremony honoring all those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice in order to lay the groundwork for the peace, freedom and friendship we now enjoy.

    In the spirit of reconciliation and friendship, the ceremony will include U.S. Ambassador to Belgium Denise Campbell Bauer and representatives of all those affected by the Battle of the Bulge – the Germans, the city of Bastogne, and veterans – friends, allies and former foes who now all stand united as we build on the lessons of the past and address the challenges of the future together.
