On Thursday, no fixed displays, Walkabouts, "Eye-Candy" is what they prefer. A Joint Session of the NC Legislature in commemoration of the sacrifices made on D-Day (House at 1000, Senate at 1100, and a wreath-laying at the WWII monument about noon.) Hours: Roughly 0900 - 1200. Who can play: Allies (Americans, Brits, Canadians, French … ANY Allied impression that would have been at Normandy; Weapons are OK to bring, just NO LIVE AMMO OR BLANKS … they already have a firing party.


8-Jun - Price of Freedom Museum D-Day Remembrance, China Grove, NC

With it being the 75th Anniversary of D-Day it is suggested we could get OHA participation to the display and provide a firing party & bugler for the Salute and Taps. The opening ceremony is at 1000 hrs. The display is from 0900 to 1500 hrs. If anyone has any WW2 vehicles they would like to bring we would love to have them. If anyone wants to come out Friday evening we will provide a BBQ dinner.

14-16 Aug – D-Day Ohio, Conneaut, OH

We should consider attending in force this year for the 75th Anniversary. All who have attended in the past enjoyed the unique experience of coming ashore on LSTs and a great event staff.  Unlike FIG, prepare for warm weather! The event starts on Wednesday August 14th and ends on Friday August 16th. The main battle used to be on a Saturday and not a Friday.
