I suspect some guys here aren't going to believe you...



But Yeah, They Are Out There! Here in the U.S.A., and All Over The World!

I do find it Very Odd Myself...
Hey, I'm Not Even Dead Yet...Don't EVEN think of Myself As OLD!


Their Is/Was... One Group in England...Actually Re-Enacting My Old RVN Unit!
The 2nd Bn, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Divison!!!
I Kept Thinking...If I Keep Watching...Am I going to see MY Own Nametag on some 'Young Guy' Re-enacting the War in England !?!?

(I Can't Find The Link for that Particular Group...but there Was One I Know)

I find it Very Weird...But I Haven't Lost Any Sleep Over It!!!

It means I'm gettin' old!
I don't have a problem with it. The one group I have seen profiled (Pennsylvania, I think) sounded very respectful of what they were doing.

I did not know we got past Civil War Re-enactors. Are there WWI and WWII groups?

As to what I think about them. It is their hobby and they harm no one, so live and let live.

I wonder if they have hippy re-enactors spit on them when they finish re-enacting and they are on their way home.

I see the Russians have a group. What's with those commies pretending to be American troops. This gives me a case of the A$$. Being true to form, they should be pretending to be the NVA.

I drove city bus for 27 years, started right out of the army back in '73. I was only 22 and wound fairly tight, this guy got on the bus wearing a green Russian style cap with a bright red commie star right on the front. I told him the last time I saw a hat with a star like that on it there was a dead guy under the hat, he didn't think I was very funny, I got wrote up...so what.

Thanks from Stormtrooper

I'm just curious. To make it truly realistic during a re-enactment, do they have busloads of cowards dressed in 60's attire driving towards Canada when the re-enactments are going on?

Motown out

No, . . . I don't think so, . . . but that lying thug POS John Kerry is still alive and as stupid as he ever was.

May God bless,
