    It is fun.Over 70% of the equipment,100% of the firearms,and 50% of the uniforms are original,not repo.We all are collectors,who use and enjoy what we have.What is not shown in any photos,is the P-51 Mustang and Avenger that fly 50 to 75 feet above us while we gathered.There are also field kitchens,that serve excellent meals of pork,potato,and hard bread.Girls who do USO shows,military convoys into town at night,vendors selling anything you might want,period music,FDR and Churchill look a likes,and crowds coming just to see us,make it great.What you might notice from the photos is,the age group is from 16 to 80,with a common interest.

    This weekend was at Buckley Homestead,Lowell,Indiana (always the first weekend in May).On June 20-22 at Benton Harbor,Michigan ,the U.S. Coast Guard will be landing myself and 200 friends on the southern beaches of Lake Michigan.If we can get past the German defenders,we will march to the aiport,and secure it till relieved. Must admit,this is reliving history at it's best.
