Re: Military Through the Ages

Poster: PDRUSS@aol.com In a message dated 98-02-04 22:50:19 EST, you write: << > Why be sorry? MTTA is a judged event where the various groups compete for the accolade of 'most authentic', and the SCA is its' own thing -somewhere between a costume party and re-enactment but not either. They're both cool, and they're both fun. BTW, MTTA has had a Gulf War group in the past. Erica >> Last time I went was like 3 years ago. When I saw the Vietnan group complete with an America POW tied up in a bambo cage, it gave me the creeps. I remember the Vietnan War and know several people who were there. People that lived throught that hell. We use to have a neighbor (Vietnan vet) who would wake up screaming several times a month, you could hear him all over the neighborhood. I realize that the Middle Ages would certainly be hell to us now, but no one is alive who truly lived it. Who would have memories and nightmares at being reminded.
