The Museum of American Armor is returning with it's first encampment of 2021. If you like tanks you'll like this. Tickets are first come-first served. Book them before they are sold out: https://www.oldbethpagevillagerestoration.org/tickets

Don't forget about the boys that rode with the Armored only on two wheel!
I got the gang together for a group shot. This is a tribute event on the date of the Battle of Hue in Vietnam -- 2/20/68.
See if you guys can get some surplus!
Today is the 75th anniversary of the U.S. atomic attack on Hiroshima, Japan, whose racial underpinnings share many similarities to the police killing of George Floyd. Neither had to happen.
I've recorded and shared the Museum's events for many years. I shot 2016's Military Encampment, but for some reason never posted anything to YouTube at the time. I recently found the footage and created a trilogy out of it. You'll certainly recognize friends and fellow reenactors. Here's the link to Part 1:
Dear Veterans and Friends, Please join us on Monday, May 25th, Memorial Day 2020 as we honor and pay tribute to our military service members who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Nassau County will be hosting a Memorial Day Car Parade on Monday, May 25th at 9:30 AM. Cars will line up at the Nassau Coliseum Parking Lot, off 185 Charles Lindbergh Blvd., at 9 AM. The parade route will be guided by the Nassau County Police Department and the NY State Police. The parade route will conclude by passing the Veterans Memorial Plaza at Eisenhower Park. This will be a strictly car-only event—no walking. Any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency at (516) 572-6565. Thank you.
