G Company, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division (Reenacted)

We portray George Company, of the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, of the 82nd Airborne Division. We are living Historians/Reenactors dedicated to preserving the memory of the 505th Parachute Regiment, as well as all branches of the United States Military during the Second World War. 


Our mission is to preserve history for future generations, educate the public about the War and the military, and honor our Veterans. We truly take to heart the saying, that if you do not learn from the past, that you are doomed to repeat it.  However, in no way do we glorify war. War Is Hell, and this fact is too often lost on people, and we seek to let people truly understand what those before us went through.  


Most of the time, the events we participate in dictate that we focus on a Normandy time-frame, but we also portray the Regiment during it's time in Sicily, Italy, Holland, Belgium, and during it's occupation duties in Berlin. In addition, many of our unit members have secondary Second World War impressions of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, Army Air Force, as well as regular line infantry.  Our unit members also portray the United States Military ranging from the War of 1812, to the Civil War, to the Vietnam War.


We are a nonprofit organization affiliated with the World War Two Historical Reenactment Society. We participate in reenactments and Living History setups such as public displays and battles, timeline events, parades, and private tacticals in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Kentucky. This is a hobby; we are not paid.  Our payment comes from the fact that we know we are educating as many people as we can, and that we are giving our Veterans a small part of the humongous amount of honor that they deserve.
