We are a fairly new living history organization that is commited to the authentic portral of American GI's during the Second World War. The unit we portray is the I&R platoon of the 394th regiment 99th Division. Ours is a small, tight knit unit of living historians who go far beyond the current level of authenticity in the WWII hobby. We are out to learn as much as we can, and present to the public a group of WWII GI's during the last few months of the war in Europe. We try to "push the envelope" when it comes to authenticity. Please look around our web site. If you like what you see and are interested in our unit, please contact us. We are always looking for new members who embrace history the way we do.

There are many reasons for doing what we do, no two members do this for the same exact reasons. We are; however, bound together by our need to teach others about the war. There are at this time an average of 1,100 veterans passing away everyday. Soon they will all be gone. We need to learn all we can now about "their war" and teach the younger generations about what average American men and women did 60 years ago to save the world.
Mission Statement
The Primary mission of the unit is to portray a squad of rifflemen in a company of the 394th Infantry, 99th Division, during the fall of 1944 through the end of the war in Europe in May of 1945. It is our goal to portray as closely as possible the daily experiences of the average Dogfaces in the European Theater of Operations. We will achive this goal through the medium of both living history interpretation and battle reenactments.
While striving for the above, it is also the goal of the unit to take an active part in the preservation of WWII history, through research, oral history interviews with actual veterans, and the collecting and restoration of original G.I. equipment and uniforms. Above all it is to keep alive the memory of the men who by, "just doing their bit", helped to fight for freedom around the world.

99th Division Patch
The Checkerboard pattern in the patch comes from the coat of arms of William Penn. Because of the patch, the unit was knicknamed the Checkerboards.
