WHO WE ARE:
WWII 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment Reenacted is a nonpolitical association, comprised
of amateur historians and those interested in keeping the memories
of America's Second World War Veteran's alive.
We are based in Arizona and the Southwest United States. Our
purpose is to faithfully depict the American Airborne Trooper
from Item Company 501st PIR and 327th Glider Infantry Regiment
of World War II.
Paratroopers of the 501st PIR were young and enthusiastic men,
willing to sacrifice their lives to protect and preserve freedom
for millions of people throughout the world. Troopers of the 101st
Airborne fought from the hedgerows of Normandy, to the bridges
of Holland, and from the bitter cold of Bastogne to the capitulation
Through living history events, WWII tactical battles (both private
and public), displays of period accurate uniforms, equipment and
techniques, we honor those Paratroopers, Glidermen who participated
in the drama and tragedy of war, and whose efforts and sacrifices
secured the Allied victory in World War II.
