World War II Reenacting Corps
World War II Re-enacting and Living History can be a valuable educational tool for both those who participate and those who witness the activity. It is a way to transport the participant and viewer alike back into the past to see first-person at least some measure of what life was like as a soldier, sailor, airmen or civilian during a particular time period.
The World War II History Center has its own re-enacting units for the purpose of staging mock battles, providing demonstrations, and participating in parades and displays. These units are known as the World War II Reenacting Corps. We can also help guide those interested in establishing a living history impression for those that would like to teach others about a particular role during World War II, whether it is a military or civilian persona.

No military experience is required! We will teach you how to be a World War II-era soldier.
