Lets See Your Impressions!


Recommended Posts

Here is my impression. Corporal of the U.S 32nd Infantry Division, 128th Infantry Regiment, Company B. 1918, Alsace. The group photos were taken at Rockford, IL in April. Shows my old gear when I was doing a standard Rifleman. I now only have the haversack, Squad leader pouch, and "souvenirs" on my haversack since then. Enjoy!

Here's a photo from 3rd Army Historical Society's School of the Soldier this past weekend. A Captain leads the defense of a perimeter...

 

A special thanks to Ray175INF for the Schleuter helmet shell and Johnny Costino for the Hawley Liner.

The location is the Museum of 20th Century Warfare at Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park in Indiana. Every year they have the boyscouts come out to help improve the trench system a bit more. It's a protected site so no digging, so they have to build above ground and backfill. It really looks awesome.

I love the location, so neat to have a place to shoot that looks the part!

Here is another shot of the 2015 School of the Soldier at the Museum of 20th Century Warfare, Fort Ben Harrison State park, Indiana showing trench clearing operations. The entire complex has trenches, bunkers and hidey holes built in.

I like the first photo, what abandoned RR was that taken on?

I couldn't tell you not much of it still remains as far as where I was standing. This was taken around the city of Waxahachie, Texas if it helps any.

Sam,

Great photo! You and your girlfriend's impressions are very good, and you're both exactly the right ages (and sizes) for the part. Very good background, too (it's a steel caboose but some railroads were building them from steel by '41, and it'd look new like that one does) and a good pose. I would only suggest you turn this photo to b/w or sepia to disguise some of the modern landscaping elements in the foreground, and then it'd be extremely difficult to tell that it is a modern photo.
