Nico’s accident

This is just to let all of Nico’s friends and acquaintances know that in the evening of 7 January 2015 Nico broke his neck in a bad fall on some steps near his home. The injury is very serious and he has been kept in an artificial coma in Luxembourg City’s main hospital since that day while doctors are trying to help him recover. He has many activities planned but the accident will keep him grounded for a while….

GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON, Jr.

 
One of America’s greatest WWII generals is interred in the Luxembourg American Cemetery.
He commanded the Third Army during its sweep across France, its push north to liberate besieged Bastogne in the Battle of the Bulge – when it created this cemetery – and the advance through southern Germany, and into Austria and Czechoslovakia. He broke his neck in a car accident in Germany in December 1945, died 12 days later in a Heidelberg hospital and was buried here on Christmas Eve of that year.
