Hi Doc, I usually go up and help a friend vend, this year was the first time I went as a participant. I found it to be an all out party (not my scene) and that was pretty much it. Yeah, I'm not into the "frat party" atmosphere up there, either. My unit is a "dry" unit i.e. we do...

It's great to see another 307th buff! I presume you've seen the Unit History that we were able to put together based on the official Unit History > 307th Airborne Medical Company History
Thanks,
Ben

DISCLAIMER...this is my own personal opinion on FIG. Lisa: Aside from going up there to buy stuff at the flea market individually, my unit no longer attends FIG. I'm not posting anything to dissuade fellow medical re-enactors from attending, but here is my unit's reason for saying "NO" to ...

@TenthA86: That camp photo is AWESOME! Now that's good re-enactin' weather that I wish we could get here in VA! My setups are probably not something that people with a lot of gear would want to copy. I don't have any wall tents or anything like that, so I usually improvise everything on the fly. I d...

Checking in from Virginia...

The old site, WWIIcombatmedic, made by Alain and Dave Steinert, was my first point of reference in getting my kit together back in 2004. Below is my unit's website. We do a lot of medical displays for the public, i...
