I started volunteering at the National Museum of The Pacific War about a year ago now and I thought that some people In the 405th would also have a interest in this topic

That is way cool. I love that others out there are keeping in remembrance what those guys went through.

When you decide to reenact VMF-214 Black sheep, lemme know!

Wow! This is so cool! Unfortunately there's no reenacting really accessible to me in my area. But I really love WWII and military subjects. I've been thinking about doing some sort of military cosplay perhaps. Since you're in Texas there's really nothing I can ask that would be of use to me!:( Thanks so much for sharing though! I personally would love to see more WWII/military content on the forums!

Check out this website, they have a list of most of the reenactment units around including the areas they operate in.

Thanks! I checked out the site before. I'm not sure if I found anything really up to date in my area.:( There is a local con I plan on going to though, I could do a tactical or WWII cosplay there. I think it's a better fit for me anyway, because I'm not a stickler for historical accuracy. I definitely appreciate hardcore attention to detail, but budget and artistic license is more my thing.

You can still put together a phenomenal impression on a budget, plenty of companies that make reproductions make budget items. At the front, SOF militaria, epic militaria, and hessian antiques all make quality repros for all types of impressions! If you have anything specific in mind I could try and direct you in the right direction!

Cool! Thanks for the links! Part of my problem is simply deciding on a specific impression, because there's so many to choose from. I'm pretty happy with just doing a more "hollywood" or video-game inspired impression, espeicially if I'm going to a local comic con, rather than a reenactment event. Trouble is, I've found a lot of resources for reenacting, but not things that are readily available and easily accessible. It would be a lot easier in the future though if I really wanted to get involved. I'm still finishing up school, not currently working, and I don't even drive yet (just turned 18, and now I get to skip driver's ed when I start training:D) So the advice is great, but figured I would mention that because otherwise it makes it seem like I'm turning down perfectly reasonably suggestions!

Do some research on units, find something that appeals to you and run with it. I ended up with airborne due to the way the airborne were portrayed in Band of Brothers. That being said there are nearly endless possibilities when it come to WWII units.

I still have my equipment but ive been out of it for a couple of years. I was reenacting as the 4th Gebirgsjagers. I loved the community on both sides and always had a fun time. Unfortunately life just cought up to me and has hindered a bunch of my hobbies.
