    I posted a thread yesterday about the reenactment. If you did not make it, put it on your calendar for next years event. It will be Aug 22, 2009. This was an awesome show. Everyone should go see it. And it was free to the public. Both sides had authentic to the era uniforms and weapons. There were aircraft, Navy vessels, mortars, machine guns who could ask for more. This are just a few of the pictures I took. Hope you all enjoy them as much as we did.

    The US Navy Reserve from Buffalo NY brought the troops in with there Landing Crafts. That wasn't authentic, but the effect was something to see.

    There wasn't a lot of publicity (not sure why) but there was a good decent crowd there.

    I took that one for you George. I didn't want you to feel left out. You know, seeing real ships instead of rafts with big motors:eek: Just kidding buddy:p
