Historic Ft. Atkinson held it's annual Time Line weekend August 31 - September 1. With sunny skies and mild temperatures, this year we had much better weather than 2018. Representing our group were Eric portraying a Vietnam-era U.S. Navy fighter pilot from VF-162 aboard the USS Oriskany, Jeff portraying a paratrooper of the 507th PIR in World War II, and our friend Alex representing a World War II U.S. Marine. As always there are a ton of fun things to see and do at the fort on their living history weekends. My wife brought my three kids out to see us and we had a great time visiting all of the different reenactors and areas of the fort. Once again I took part in the afternoon whiskey ration, and boy is that stuff STRONG!!! It was a great day and remains one of my favorite events of the year!
