A Re-Enactment of the Normandy Invasion
At Lake Erie in Conneaut, Ohio
D-Day Conneaut brings together the die-hard re-enactors (most will sleep in their bivouac during the event) with vendors of nearly everything a collector needs from belt buckles and canteens to steel-pot helmets (for various armies) and a replica side-car motorcycle.
Anthony Buccino joined nearly 20,000 re-enactors and visitors at 2013's gathering on Aug. 16 and Aug. 17 on the shore of Lake Erie at Conneaut Township Park in Conneaut, Ohio.
The re-enactors recreated the camps, the training and carnage of the D-Day landing on Normandy beaches in France on June 6, 1944.
Buccino also researched and met local veterans of the D-Day invasion. He has written about survivors and the fallen from Belleville and Nutley, N.J. Between the two small northern New Jersey towns, at least 70 young men perished in the Normandy invasion of Fortress Europe and V-E Day. Nutley lost 92 sons who died in WWII. More than 110 Belleville sons died in WWII.
Here are links Buccino's D-Day and World War II research.
