    World War II Re-enactment in New Oxford Pennsylvania

    I just wanted to let any members that live in the area of New Oxford Pennsylvania about the WWII re-enactment that will be taking place on September 16 at 9 am.
    A friend of mine, Steve and I will be riding our bikes to the event, then after we figured we would ride around the countryside of Pennsylvania. Steve has attended this twice and said it is just a "must see"

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Yeah I think it's more like single rut but I bet it would be a cool place to Stealth camp.

    They say WW2 veterans will be there to share stores
    Are any WW2 Vets still alive? They have to be pretty old if they are

    Like my Dad the first day you turned 18 you enlisted. That group of kids at the end of the war were being trained for the Amphibious Invasion of mainland Japan.
    A-Bomb good or bad put that invasion on the shelf. So these young guys are not just part of the Greatest Generation, perhaps the Luckiest Generation.

    Ironically they were the first to be reactivated when Korea started-up.

    I was in Arizona last week and visited the Pima Air & Space Museum which is the gatekeeper for access to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Located on that base is the famous airplane "Boneyard". Incredible would be an understatement, another story.
    But back at Pima was an Army Air Corp (there was no Air Force then) veteran who flew in the very first daytime bombing raids over Germany. I saw this gentleman but by the time we got back from the boneyard he was gone for the day. He was 94 and while I didn't get to speak to him just being in his presence was enough. Hopefully I'll go back again next year and he'll still be there. He was 94.
    So yeah, they are still around.

    .
    If you had pics hosted online anywhere I'd be interested in seeing them (of the airplane junk yard)

    I am fascinated with the meaness of humans and the amazing courage of average humans brought out from WW2. Any war actually, It's just WW2 touched so many people's lives
