Johan Steele wrote: He stayed after their talk and offered to show them how they actually wore their gear and how they carried their weapons a little differently than the re-enactors. He was rebuffed by being told that they had used photos and movie reals to get their gear and such correct. In short saying that they knew better than a man who had been there. The veteran nodded and smiled slightly then explained that the photos & movie they described watching had been done in Hawaii, before they went into combat.
I like this part a lot, especially the last sentence. You'd think if you have a vet of the war you're re-enacting say "let me show you how we did it" then you'd want to listen to them as they have the real life experince.
