The living Historians all came from a host of local individual organizations and portrayed U.S. soldiers during WW2 in the ETO (European theater of Operations) as well as soldiers from a multitude of different Historical time periods. Their ongoing, collaborative mission is to educate the general public on U.S. military history, and Military history, in general. Today, they deliberately wore a variety of WW2 U.S. Uniforms, showing the progression/changes of the uniforms worn during WW2.
