Visie & Missie

Wildeboer Draagplaat understands better than anyone how important it is to recognize military pride and the importance of displaying medals. That’s why they developed the Veteran and Airmobile Medal Holder with an eye for detail and respect for the military pride that comes with it. The demand for the Veteran Medal Holder arose from veterans who proudly wear their Veteran uniform at ceremonies and private occasions. Over time, small holes appeared in jackets and blazers due to pinning on medals. Veteran Jan Wildeboer, together with his son at home Jorn, decided to respond to this. Together they founded Wildeboer Draagplaat, where they designed and produced a unique, beautiful and sturdy Medal Holder Veteran. In addition, they have also designed a stand with which you can give your medals a place of honor in your home or office, so that you can proudly show them to everyone!

The veteran/owner:

Jan Wildeboer joined the 13th Infantry Battalion Air Mobile in Assen on June 1, 1996, after six years of service in Germany, as a sergeant major. After 2½ years in Assen, Jan was transferred to Schaarsbergen, where he was added as Sergeant Major S4 of the brigade staff LMB. During that time, Jan’s efforts included the development of personal carrying and sleeping equipment, footwear and clothing as a representative of the airmobile unit. In particular, the modular combat vest and backpack were developed thanks to his input. He contributed to several choices regarding proposed equipment that are still in use today.

After his time as added Sergeant Major S4, veteran Jan became the Adjutant Platoon Commander of Logistics with the 11th LMB Medical Company. He then became battalion manager with the 200 Supply and Transport Battalion. He spent the last 12 years of his service career as a logistics officer in the Royal Military Police, where he retired as a captain in 2018.

Jan says, “So I served in the Air Mobile Unit for 8 years. I supervised and coordinated many exercises and deployments in logistics. I attended staff training and had great adventures. I worked a lot with well-known airmobile colleagues. Developing the medal carrying system was actually a logical consequence, something I was able to pick up nicely after retirement.”
