I am looking to form a squad of 101st paratroopers in Northeast Ohio to do living history events. Anyone interested needs to have their own equipment and meet military weight standards. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
:-\ ACK!! Not yet another band of 101st :O>@
Why not do a leg infantry unit? ???
Everyone wants to be 101st. God gimme a break.
Well, my uncle was 101st, my Dad in Viet Nam. And I have all of my vehicles in 101st (they have been for 15 years). There are only ground pounders in Ohio. We have no paratroopers. I have been doing basic Civil War infantry for the last 18 years, so I wanted to do something I have not tried before.
BS that there's only ground pounders.
Theres Chris Kanoski's (sp) 101 out of columbus ohio, theres another 101 group out of Western PA that does some events in northeastern ohio- Theres a handful of 101 guys from that Western PA group in northeast ohio. Some kid and Joe Plaisted i know of for sure.
Have you really looked to find these other groups, or is this a case of politics and wanting to do your own thing?
I have done several Internet searches and never found anything. That is why I thought I would have to start my own gig. Do you have any contact information on these guys?

327th GIR 101st AB Div
C Company, 327th Glider Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division
HQ Company 502 PIR/ 327 GIR 101st AB Div

Fantastic. They didn't come up on Google. Much appreciated. Saves me a lot of work!
