WWII Weekend Eisenhower Farm NPS
For 10 years WWII Polish LHG had been attending the Eisenhower Farm event.
The NPS does a great job of hosting and the visitors keep us coming back.
Here the section begins Saturday morning with the traditional Polish
army greeting "Czolem Zolnierze"
The national colors are raised.
Of course the army moves on its stomach. Drag. Popiela was gracious enough to cook the meals
all weekend. The rest of the section pitched in for cleaning.
As always public visitation was superb. Here Boy Scouts receive instruction on
making a phone call the old fashioned way.
We were honored to be visited by staff from the Polish Embassy in Washington D.C.
From left to right Col. Maciej Wozniak (PAF Ret), Johanna Wozniak (Consular and Passport Specialist)
Drag. Dennis Popiela (WWII Polish LHG), Barbara Goralczyk (Vice-Consul Embassy)
Jaroslaw Goralczyk (Consul Embassy), ppor. Christopher Petronis (WWII Polish LHG)
The section and regimental colors take the salute of embassy staff.
Drag. Andrew Petronis makes sure no Germans get within grenade tossing distance of the camp.
The real heroes of the event are our real WWII Veterans. As always we are
honored by their presence and to hear their stories.
This is what happens after several hours in 85+ degree temperatures
while wearing full gear and talking non-stop.
Saturday night after dinner we all attended the 1940's big band
dance sponsored by the NPS. Background picture Little Round Top
or perhaps Monte Casino? Okay, it's Little Round Top.
Sunday was just as busy with visitors.
