Back in the late 1970's we started playing soldier, army, cowboys and Indians (no disrespect) and that's part of what will never be the same. Politically correctness and 911 changed our hobby for ever. The lack of pure history being taught in schools today. But there was a time when collectors and historians created a club taught history for what it was and it was appreciated. As The Veterans pass from a time when it was an honor to honor them. We created a group of historians and collectors who devoted many hours and days sometimes weeks and years to planning displays and events. To all my friends, Some of who have passed on as we are also getting older. Learning 7 different manual of arms. Restoration of vehicles, and equipment. Wearing all original gear. I post these pictures to remember a time when we took time to research, collect, study, preserve and put are hard work heart and soul into a display or weekend for the lessons of history. Times have changed. Some of the things we did....enjoy.
Our club... lots of pictures to follow
