The 29th Division World War II Reenactors Organization is based on the east coast and the south of the United States, with members from a variety of States, but the majority of our members are located in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The principles and objectives of our organization are straightforward and simple. We seek, by our participation in living history, tactical and educational events to accomplish the following organizational objectives:
To as accurately portray infantry companies of the World War II 29th Division. Our members will only utilize appropriate uniforms and equipment, and proper demeanor, to provide the best possible portrayal of the WWII infantryman of the 29th Division.
To participate as an effective means to both educate the public about the 29th Division specifically and U.S. infantry in WWII generally, as well as to be the active guardians of the memory of the 29th Division of 1941-1945.
To educate ourselves about our history. We seek to learn as much WWII history as possible from not only available materials, but from the best available sources we know of - the 29th Division veterans.
To create a positive, fun and learning atmosphere for our members . This is a hobby, not a job.
Support the efforts of the 29th Division Association and 29th Division veterans. We seek not only their support for our efforts, but to support their events and efforts wherever and whenever possible. They won't be here forever. They deserve not only our support, but also our appreciation -- a simple "thank you" for their sacrifices that allowed all of us to be born in a world they helped make free.
