As you all are aware that last year's marching through History and it's organizers through Jeff Sharp gave our group official recognition for winning first place for best encampment in the 1900 up to WWII event. I hope most of you will give full support for this event and continue the proud tradition of the scouts by representing them in this big event. Specially in the parade of units!
For those definetly attending print this out as the parking pass for marching through History.

Sorry Philip I didnt bring a camera. Saturday I was with the 34th ID and Sunday I went as a Scout more members came down for Sunday, but no big crowds like Saturday Donald did alot of filming of us, which was alot of fun we even did some Common Wealth The Japanese guys Otsumi and Russell were in the filming and in one of the scenes that Joe wanted to do was a Japanes bayoneting a GI during a Death March scene and Otsumi broke down in tears...he felt really bad doing that scene.

I forgot the name of the PS vet who was there Saturday "Dr." Well he made a comment to me in private...thanking us for what we are or we were doing. He said to me in a manner like...without our living history he and his fellow soldiers would just be a memory. He is very proud of us. Also Sunday General Ortega was there too.
A passerby commented on how well the sign was made "USAFFE.." and I said that the was made by a guy named Philip Garcia.
