I'm the tall guy on the far right. I'm with B Co. 100th Infantry Battalion 442nd Regimental Combat Team Reenactment Group as a photographer from the 3131st Signal Photographic Company.This is from last year's training exercise in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan, which was based on the July 1944 attack on Hill 140 near Castillena, Italy. For the reenactment we had wehrmacht reenactors in dug-in positions on a hillside that we assaulted at 0400. I wrote about it in Reenacting America's Nisei Soldiers In Japan. This was my first time going out and participating in a reenactment.

Great looking impression Jakelives! The 3131st is definitely one of the most underrepresented SPC's in the army.

Not an impression as such, but a display (I didn't think to get anyone to take a photo of me)...

This past weekend, my living-history group put on a large WW2 display at the Olympia (WA) air show. The second day, I brought out my war correspondent stuff, which the public really liked (the first day, I had my Ordnance display)

My Jeep is the second to the right in this lineup (out of the shot to the right was a Chevy 1.5-ton and GMC 2.5-ton trucks)
