This weekend, the National D-Day Memorial is offering an opportunity for visitors to experience WWII history in a very fun, engaging, and unique way. On Saturday, April 28th historical interpreters with the 29th Living History Association and the 82nd Airborne will turn out in full battle gear to show the public what soldiers did, carried, and thought about to prepare for the invasion of Europe.
Visitors can view WWII era German artifacts, attend a briefing on the invasion, examine weapons and equipment, walk inside a period command tent, learn about the life of a medic by viewing period artifacts, meet WWII veterans, see WWII radio controlled airplanes on display, and watch a WWII model train demonstration.
Regularly scheduled tours are offered throughout the day and a food vendor will be on site. The National D-Day Memorial’s living history event is scheduled for Saturday, April 28th from 10am to 5pm. Regular fees apply. If you need any further information, feel free to check our website, www.dday.org or give us a call at (540)586-3329.
Hope to see you then!
