The one neat thing about the Eisenhower event is that it draws groups of people that portray the Russians (second photo), Polish (first photo), Canadian, French and other troops that fought in the war. These living historians are a wealth of knowledge and I always enjoying learning from them. Looking at the first photo you will see that the Polish soldier is using a Thompson and we found out at this event that the Russians also had some Thompson's. I think they are some of the coolest guns around but I do not think it would have been my weapon of choice in the war.
Please visit Shane's blog today for a new photo. And what do you know a whole week of new photos for a change. Maybe I can do that more often in the future with fall coming.
