Where in GA is this outfit? I've always wanted to do something like that but never met anyone into it. Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure where in Georgia they are, though.
There's also another outfit based in VA and MD (502 PIR, at:
Greg, Thanks. I'll be in contact as soon as I check out the link you sent (and get back from Easter.)

Trust me, that's not a disqualification.....we had to send someone back to make sure this one guy hadn't shuffled off this mortal coil. Truth is after slogging through the fog and snow, even the younger guys still trained up by the service were panting.
Admittedly I've seen some reenacted paras that would have required shortening the sticks to keep the plane from being over load, but what the hell, unless you are doing a public display, where some veracity of appearance should be maintained, who cares...

Then again, if Mel Gibson could have 'outlawed pipes' in the time of Wallace, a Thompson in the revolution is not nearly as phantasmagoric.
Did you know people in London were killed protesting George IIIs war against the colonies? The war was not as entirely popular as our history sometimes paints it. People are just not quite as stupid as the ruling classes sometimes wish they were.

You've got questions and they have answers.

I'm in the 101st Living History Association - sponsored by the 101st Airborne Museum at Ft. Campbell. We do 502nd PIR and 327th GIR.
I'm in contact with other units in Tennessee, Missouri, Ohio, and Kentucky, if anyone is interested in those areas. They do everything from paratroops, to infantry, to Signal Corps.
And don't wory about being too old/large... We just pretend not to notice those things.
While we're on the subject - sort of - don't forget that "Band of Brothers" is on the History Channel this Sunday.
