We attended the Scott Air force Base air show and once again took part in the Tora Tora Tora show. The Blue angels put on an amazing show along with many other trick planes and Air force jets. The Hangar Dance put on by the Commemorative Air Force was also a good time as usual. A little Rain didn’t stop anyone from dancing the night away. For more information and photos from this event visit cafmo.org. Or photos and videos on our website.
Another great event we attended was WWII Days at Midway Village in Rockford Il. As usual this was a great event. Hundreds of Reenactors from all over the Midwest come to this event and pull out all the stops. There was so much to see and do there wasn’t enough time. 2nd Rangers had a good time falling in with old friends from 5th Ranger Bn, 2nd Infantry Division, and 9th Infantry Division. To see more about this event also check our photos.
Next few events will be the WWII RBA reunion in Ft.Benning Ga, and the River Battle at Ft.Bellefontain. Recruitment is up theis year with seven new people. We have a potential for two more coming on board as well.
There have been new photo albums placed in the photo section of our website, and new videos as well. If you would like to make a donation to our organization, our donations page is up and running. Your donations are tax deductible and your generosity helps restore a building at Jefferson Barracks, and helps make WWII Weekend at Jefferson Barracks a quality event. See you at the next event.
