I am registered with the 2nd Gebirgs for this one.

I will also bring VS impression as well.

Hope you all have recovered from the GAP. All the patents that I ministered to at the hospital survived.

Check out the hospital on You-Tube.

On the weekend of 3-4 October 2010 there will be a WW2 Living History event at Brentsville, (Prince William County) Virginia. We are looking for reenactors and living historians to fill the outside. We have a 30-acre site with 1822 courthouse and jail, 1928 one room school house and 1880 church. It was the fourth county seat in Prince William and was the county seat during the Civil War, the Battle of Bristoe Station just up the road 4 miles to the east.

If interested contact me and I’ll forward your email to the facility manager, Rob Orrison.
