ABOUT WWII ALHA

Investing in our future by preserving our past

Our Mission

The WWII Airborne Living History Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit historical society dedicated to educating the public and preserving the heritage and legacy of the WWII airborne soldier. The WWII ALHA supports education through immersive living history events where visitors are surrounded with the sights, sounds, and smells encountered by the WWII airborne solider. The WWII ALHA strives to portray the WWII airborne soldier as accurately as possible while permitting visitors to explore a complete WWII "company street" complete with billeting tents, company headquarters, field kitchen, motor pool, and other aspects of camp life.

Visitors are encouraged to ask questions and handle the wide array of equipment present in camp. With ony a few exceptions everything in the camp is functrional so that visitors may fully understand how the WWII airborne soldier wore the uniforms and used the equipment. Visitors can heft the weight of a machine gun, strap on a parachute, try on a parachutist helmet, or look through a soldier's footlocker. Just about everything is open for exploration. A visit to a WWII ALHA event is a hands-on, emersive expereince for adults and children alike.
