The World War 2 Guys joined up for a fall battle on Sunday, October 25 south of Plattsmouth, Nebraska. In attendance were Will, Jeff, Matt, Scott, Bob and Eric representing the Indianheads of the 2nd Infantry Division and Cody, Alex and Eli representing our German opposition. The weather was excellent with temperatures in the 50s and 60s and sunny skies throughout the day. We ran a morning scenario where the G.I. force was tasked with running a patrol to locate the German lines. Well, when Staff Sergeant Green is in charge a "patrol" takes on an entirely new meaning. The old Sarge had us marching over hills and dales, through woods and ravines and all over hell and back to find those Germans! And 1.5 miles later we made contact and blasted it out in the woods of Kriegwald, After an enjoyable break munching on K-Rations and other canned foods, we were back in action. For the afternoon scenario the G.I.s held a strategic intersection in anticipation of a German counterattack. The Germans didn't disappoint and moved quickly on our positions. Fortunately for the Americans, we outnumbered our opponents and outgunned them with our trusty M-1 Rifles. It was such a great day to get out in the field and enjoy the gorgeous October colors and spend some time with each other!
