This weekend, May 19 and 20, Old Bethpage Village Restoration will be hosting a World War II Re-enactment. OBVR will be home to a troop of 101st Airborne reenactors in period gear, who will set up camp for the weekend. They will demonstrate tactical maneuvers using the American Airpower Museum's armored division, including a Sherman tank, their new 155mm Long Tom howitzer as well as a variety of armored vehicles, jeeps and trucks.

Some of what you may see this weekend:
