Greetings from Wales
« on: July 30, 2007, 03:49:59 AM »
Hi everyone

I have just stumbled across this forum. My name is Chris Gordon, I've been reenacting now for about 6 years. I started out doing WWII German, then switched sides and became 101st Airborne WWII. Whilst researching, I got talking to a Nam vet from 101st and my interest grew and grew, so I started my own Vietnam group based on the LRRPs/Rangers of Vietnam.

Before starting it, I emailed a veteran asking if they would mind me doing it, as I wanted to honour them and not annoy them. He forwarded my mail on, and I received loads of replies saying they wouldn't mind at all, and I've now become friends with many who served in the unit, and they are supportive of what we try to do.

The group now has an active base of 8 people, which is good, as it fills a LRRP team for our shows. We train regularly in tactics, and ensure that when we do the shows, we do it right.

Looking forward to taking part on here, and meeting more people who share this hobby.
