THE REENACTMENT SQUAD
99th INFANTRY DIVISION 393rd REGIMENT, EASY COMPANY

Our unit was founded on June 18, 1999, when six local World War II living historians (Founding Fathers) formed the reenactment squad of the 99th Infantry Division, 393rd Regiment, Easy Company. Based in Erie, Pa., our American rifle squad of reenactors educates the public on the type of uniforms, weapons, food, and field equipment used by the common infantry rifleman from 1941-45.

We also train with period manuals dealing in the field tactics and manual of arms of WW II. As a squad, we stress above-average authenticity in our time period. Our impression has grown with the help of local veterans and the great memories of the surviving members of the 99th Infantry Division Association. Easy Company also has a growing roster of period vehicles that are part of displays and reenactments. They include a 1940 Dodge weapons carrier and a 1942 heavy wreaker. We are a recognized and franchised member of the 20th Century Tactical Studies Group Inc. This national organization for modern reenactors was established to promote public awareness of the sacrifices made by the common soldier of all armies during the conflicts of the 20th Century.

Easy Co. is very active in northwestern Pennsylvania participating in parades, living histories, public displays and combat reenactments. We have done programs at the Pennsylvania Soldiers and Sailors Home and the Erie Air Show, and for the Erie County Historical Society. Also, we have participated in national combat reenactments at Fort Indiantown Gap, Pa.; Camp Atterbury, Ind.; Bedford, Pa.; and Fort Custer, Mich. Additionally, we have taken part in the national World War II Air Show/Reenactment weekend in Reading, Pa., and the D-Day reenactment in Conneaut, Ohio.

Easy Company wants you! Don't delay. Jump into the battle!

There's much to learn, battles to fight and fun to have.
