Explosions...Gun shots and other pyrotechnics were let off for a major World War II re-enactment . More than 800-people re-lived the war with tanks...Artillery and armored trucks. There was also mock soldier base camps set up filled with period vehicles, tents, and artifacts. Today's soldiers said it was an honor to portray veterans who actually fought in world war two.

"They carried double their body weight when they jumped out of the planes, just hearing their stories, i have the highest reguards for what they've done in the past," said reenactor Scott Miller.
