Winter Immersion 2020: Bastogne Surrounded
Public · Hosted by Robert Blecke and Chris Seitz

Hefty Rd, Monticello, WI 53570, United States

This first-year event is a multi-day, campaigner-style full immersion tactical. This is a 24/7 tactical with round the clock operations. No breaks or stops.

The focus is on surviving - in spite of the weather, the uncertainty, the fatigue, and the enemy. The Allies will begin and remain surrounded, but have the advantage of interior lines. The German forces will have the advantage of setting the tempo of offensive operations. The only victors are those who survive.

All participating units and individuals will be folded into the event chain of command.

5  Events List: North American Theater of Operations / Viet Nam Events / 20-22 September 2019, Cambodian Incursion, Operation Binh Tay I, Waxahach, TX on: September 02, 2019, 05:44:57 PM
20-22 September 2019, Cambodian Incursion, Operation Binh Tay I,  Waxahach, TXodian Incursion, Operation Binh Tay I - 1970

Public · Hosted by Brandon Morley and Brian Shajari

Sep 20 at 2 PM – Sep 22 at 12 PM

2439 W Highway 287 Business, Waxahachie, TX 75167

The rough idea I have in mind for this event is the Cambodian Incursion during the "Northern Thrust" into NVA Base area 702 in Operation Binh Tay I in May 1970. 

The goals of the event will be to seek out and destroy ALL cashes of rice, ammunition and any other war materials that might aid the North in their fight for a unified Vietnam under communist rule.

I am attempting to make this as immersive as I possibly can but everyone plays a part in the success or failure of an event and as such I need everyone’s help to pull this off.

You might ask how can I help?  Below are a few ways...

1.) Commit and Register sooner rather than later so event coordinators can organize units and make accommodations as needed that typically take time to implement.
2.) Focus on improving your encampment & impression rather than others... you can’t control what others do but you can what you do.
3.) Be willing to abide by the rules and standards set up by the event coordinators... there is a reason we request what we do.

Let it to be known that participants have options with regard to sleeping arrangements... there will be an encampment area (near the parking lot and registration area) where authenticity standards are not as stringent BUT for those who desire to live out of their “Rucks” and sleep in the field, you must be willing to “Hump” in everything you feel you will need to sustain you while there... NO POV's will be allowed on the field... only period vehicles are authorized for those that desire to bring them.  THERE ARE NO RESTROOM FACILITIES ON SITE... you will need to dig a hole (but if we have enough interest I will look into renting a porta pooper.

Ultimately I want ALL participants to have a fun and fulfilling experience.

If you have any questions please feel free to post here on the event page because I’m pretty sure if you have a question others do as well... BUT if you have a problem or concern please send me a PM.

Thanks everyone for your understanding and cooperation.

WWII Heritage Days 2020 to celebrate 75th Anniversary of World War II Victory
by masteradmin
The 75th anniversary of the Allied Victory in World War Victory will be commemorated around the world in 2020, and Georgia will be part of it with the 17th annual WWII Heritage Days, May 2-3, 2020, at Atlanta Regional Airport-Falcon Field in Peachtree City. The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Dixie Wing will celebrate the 1940s, salute the Greatest Generation and inspire all ages to preserve the legacy of America’s veterans. World War II veterans will be honored throughout the weekend.

A record crowd exceeding 5,000 attended WWII Heritage Days in 2019 where the CAF Dixie Wing commemorated the 75Th Anniversary of D-Day with paratrooper drops from D-Day C-47 transport planes and an opening ceremony that featured guest speakers from France and Canada.  The US Army Golden Knights parachute team and Maneuver of Excellence Band from Ft. McPherson also participated.

“WWII Heritage Days is an immersion experience,” said Jim Buckley, leader of the all-volunteer CAF Dixie Wing. “The sights and sounds will inspire people of all ages and walks of life to connect with the legacy of The Greatest Generation.”

WWII Heritage Days is the largest World War II-theme event in the state of Georgia, bringing together historic aircraft, dozens of vintage military vehicles, antique cars, educational displays and demonstrations. More than 500 volunteers from a dozen states helped create the 1940s atmosphere, supported by WWII Heritage Days sponsors the Peachtree City Convention & Visitors Bureau and Atlanta Regional Airport-Falcon Field.

The CAF Dixie Wing hosted 78 World War II veterans, the largest gathering in the state of Georgia

On Saturday evening, the romance and glamor of the Big Band Era will return during “Keep ‘em Flying”, a 1940s-theme hangar dance featuring a live 20-piece swing band. The evening is set in the CAF Dixie Wing Warbird Museum, decorated to recreate the ambiance of the period.  The dance has become a regional tradition, selling out each of the last six years.

“The CAF is best known as the largest World War II flying museum in the world,” said Buckley “but our mission is to educate, inspire and honor through flight.” In keeping with the mission, WWII Heritage Days also features vehicles aircraft and vehicles from the Korean War and Viet Nam War.

WWII Heritage Days and Keep ‘em Flying have drawn enthusiasts to Peachtree City from throughout the southeast. Past participating organizations include the Atlanta History Center, Kennesaw State University’s Museum of History & Holocaust Education, Atlanta WWII Round Table, American Rosie the Riveters Association, U.S. Army Signal Corps Museum, Army Aviation Heritage Foundation and military vehicle clubs. Local civic organizations and schools are invited to participate.

Public · Hosted by The Lockport Swing Thing and Lockport Township Park District

Sunday at 9:30 AM – 5 PM

Route 171 & Woods Drive, Lockport, Illinois 60441

**donations for the park district welcome at entry**
*This is not a Lockport Swing Thing event, we are just helping promote it.*

The Lockport Swing Thing is excited to be involved with Lockport Township Park District's WWII Days event again this year! R.J. and Jessica started teaching a beginner swing dance lesson at WWII Days in 2016 and have been doing it ever since.

As some of you already know, in 2014, after realizing why it sounded like a war was going on (oh yeah! WWII Days is happening!), R.J. and Jessica got dressed up and headed over to Dellwood Park for their first Lockport WWII Days. They made it just in time to be able to dance to the, then, Legacy Girls as they performed their Andrews Sisters Musical Revue. They enjoyed dancing with each other as well as asking audience members to dance with them. They made sure to make it back the following year, and this time, when people asked if they taught, they thought "Maybe we should!" and made plans to meet a family the following Tuesday. And there ya have it! The Lockport Swing Thing was born and is coming up on it's 4 year anniversary!

So, dress your vintage best (not a requirement) and come out and enjoy this wonderful event! There is plenty to do, and see, and eat, and drink... You will not be disappointed!
You can find the schedule for Sunday below.
