Dear Capt Bob & Co. D:
Here’s just a quick note to thank you for the truly wonderful experience that Roy and I had this past weekend at the Gettysburg event.
I have just been reflecting on how much there was to it. It was not just one thing but many things.
Obviously, this was a real learning experience for Roy and for me. It was an opportunity to experience history. There was the period clothing and uniforms, learning how to march and drill in the style of that era, the music, the dance night, a poem from that era, and even a wonderful open-air church service.
For a 4th of July weekend event, there could hardly be anything more meaningful and patriotic. Of course, it was not only a learning experience but also a chance to teach others. For the crowd watching the reenactment and those who walked through the camp, we were bringing history to those people also.
Yet, in addition to all of that, there was also camping, cookouts (with excellent food!), and socializing with all the great people in the unit. You’re a great group! I was grateful for all you did to assist us in getting up to speed. Our preparations for the weekend were done on such a short deadline that I felt about 65% ready to go, but everyone helped us out, and it turned out fine. It will be less of a worry in the future that we know the drill (as in marching as well as in having our act together generally).
So, in conclusion, I hope you all had a great Independence Day yesterday, and Roy and I send you our appreciation. We will certainly look to participate again!
Doug & Family
Wishing you and your family a wonderful and Merry Christmas as well.
Thank you so very much for having us. We are really looking forward to the meeting and the 2014 season to come!

It was a nice experience the fellowship with our guys and the others. The food was great and the manor very nice. I only wish I started (reenacting) a lot sooner than I did. But, better late than never. Hope to see you in February.
A Merry Christmas to you and your family.
