This was year 12 of  Conneaut, Ohio’s D-Day reenactment.  Lake Erie’s beaches become Omaha Beach and over 600 reenactors arrive with their uniforms, weapons, gear, and 1944 personas.  The whole event was really impressive and interesting in many ways. Here’s a glimpse of the pre-invasion Allied Camp. 

*I took so many photos over the weekend that I’ll be posting several installments!
