Who We Are:
We are a group of men
in Western New York who primarily portray Second Squad, 1st
Platoon, Dog Company, 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry, 1st Division of the United States Army during the Second World War.
We participate in a
variety of living history displays as well as tactical events. We are an
active part of our 2 newest Living History Displays. We have The WWII
Experience at the Buffalo Naval Park as well as the National Warplane Museum
Ride Days. Some of the members have started working on Vietnam Impresssions as well.
The purpose of this organization
is remembering and honoring the memory of the World War II Veterans. The goal is to accurately depict the life of the
average combat soldier during World War II. This unit, just like its original, is made up of men from all walks of life: Students,
police officers, firemen, laborers, a cross section of American society.
As a soldier in Dog Company, you will fight in exciting battles against the best units of the German Wehrmacht, the Fallshirmjager,
and the crews of the feared Panzer Divisions. Through this undertaking, you will learn about the experience of the World
War II soldier that cannot be achieved by simply reading a book. You will learn about the hardships and sacrifices of the
front-line infantryman first hand, and grow to appreciate the sacrifice paid by veterans.
As a member of an infantry rifle squad, you will learn what it means to be a part of a team, fighting fierce enemies alongside
friends and fellow soldiers. Dog Company is also open to other impressions. Would you prefer to go to war as a combat
correspondent, telling the story of the men in the field? Or perhaps your interests lie in being the grizzly old motor pool
sergeant, or saving your comrades lives as a combat medic? For more information,on joining our band of brothers, see our contact
NO MISSIONS TOO DIFFICULT,
NO SACRIFICE TOO GREAT,
