Dennison, OH event August 7-9

Come in Kickoff, over,

The Dennison Railroad Depot Museum in Dennison, OH is hosting their annual WWII living history and public display battle August 7-9. They have installed replica WWII trench works for the battle and will have living history areas set up for the public to see. Several of you have expressed interest in going and we have been extended an invitation from one of the hosting units, the 83rd Division. See their email (Warning Orders) below. If you are planning on attending please reply by no later than July 6, so we can get a count and forward the number to the 83rd Division CO Mike Felmlee. Registration is at the gate and according to the schedule, events on Saturday August 8, start at 0900 and run through 2100. There are two skirmishes scheduled for Saturday, one at 1100, the other at 1600. Everyone we have talked to says this is an excellent event and we will hopefully put some of our training to good use.

Uniform of the day for Dennision will be the M43 Market Garden time frame. Some from the 83rd have requested we bring our 1919A6, do we have any volunteers to crew it?

More information will follow as we get closer to the event and as it becomes available.

83rd Division Warning orders below;

Attn. 3rd Platoon,

Alright, let's not forget that we have committed to the Brunswick, OH event July 17-19, 2009. Here is a link:
Let's go light campaign-style to this one. Shelter halves and live out of our pockets. We will be participating in the "ride through history" part of the event where we are the entertainment. We will be the display as the public is brought through. This is the opportunity to just be us and live in the field for a couple of days.

The weekend after (July 25-26) is the final work weekend for the Dennison event. If at all possible, try to come out for one or both days to help put the finishing touches on our foxholes and weapons pits. Bring modern or period sleeping/camping gear wear work clothes, bring food and water.Link to Dennison:

We are putting in an all out max effort for the Dennison event (Aug 7-9). The people in the town and the museum really want us there, so let's give them a good show. This is shaping up to be the big Ohio event in the future. It has all of the elements it would need to be a great event. It is up to us to make that happen.
I hope to see you all soon.
