Today is the Day to HUG a World War II Veteran
We are waiting to hear back from the Post, they are re-doing the way they price/rent the buildings and they are also re-doing the cost of the rental fees.
When we get this information we will release the registration form for the 2015 event.
Our Living History Commemoration portrays Soldiers of World War II. Our purpose is to Honor the Veterans of World War II, Battle of the Bulge and present it in an Educational manner as accurately and objectively as possible. We must stress "objectively" - we concentrate on the military aspects of the soldier we DO NOT support or in any way condone the politics which directed them.
Our Living History Commemoration and its people do not represent or advocate National Socialism or any of its outgrowths. The display of the National Emblem or other insignia is done as a part of the accurate portrayal of the soldiers of the period. This Living History Commemoration and its people try to portray the common soldiers in a unit. The Axis Historians provide an important foil to the Allied Historians at public display battles and living history events. The victory of the American, British and Soviet forces did not come easily. An accurate portrayal may permit the uninformed to gauge more accurately the difficulty and the sacrifice made by all soldiers in achieving what General Eisenhower titled: "The Crusade in Europe."
Period politics are neither condoned nor tolerated, nor is the display of the Nazi Political Party Flags, Banners, or Arm Bands.
