World War II Weekend In Reading, Pennsylvania On June 6, 2010

The World War II Weekend event was held at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in Reading, PA, and featured a town erected in the style of the 1940s, many authentic vehicles and aircraft of the era, Reenactors in appropriate attire, dealer tables of Militaria and actual Veterans of the conflict! The event was a great success. The following jpegs were taken on the third and final day of the Weekend, and show only a sample of what could be seen by visitors.

Several Veterans were there to discuss their involvement with The War and sign autographs.
