The Collings Foundation is hosting a WWII reenactment and WWII Veterans round table discussion October 7th and 8th. There will be over 300 re-enactors representing several branches of Allied and Axis military participating in an amazing re-enactment. Fully restored military equipment of all kinds will be on display and participating in a dynamic educational living history event. Some of the vintage equipment includes tanks, cannons, troop carriers, half tracks, aircraft and support supplies. Allied and Axis camps were set up with authentic materials and appearance. Re-enactors act as docents who share a wealth of information about life as a WWII military person. WWII Veterans from all ranks and branches of service will participate in a round table discussion. Each veteran will spend time talking about his and her experiences of survival and perseverance during WWII.
