Army Heritage Days is back and Bigger than Ever!
Saturday - Sunday, May 17 - 18, 2014
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Daily

The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) is excited to announce its annual Army Heritage Days Event is back this year and bigger than ever! This year's event features an expanded look at World War I and showcases living historians representing Soldiers from before the French and Indian War through the Vietnam War. After a hiatus, over 500 re-enactors from all periods are eager to return to the Army Heritage Trail to bring Army history alive once again.

Throughout the two day event, historical equipment, vehicles, gear, and live demonstrations will fill the USAHEC's Army Heritage Trail. A new addition this year is a unique up-close look at a World War I bi-plane. Meanwhile, Vietnam veterans will showcase their massive gun trucks and Reenactors from all eras will demonstrate artillery, cavalry, and infantry tactics and weapons. While Army Heritage Days will feature exciting new programming, some favorites from the past several years will return, including the used book sale, the children's passport activity, and the meet and greet with Army veterans from WWII through current operations.

Re-enactor groups wishing to register to participate in this year’s event can fill out the form here.
