I am 15 years old and a student at North Crowley High School. I have been interested in WWII ever since I saw the movie "To Hell And Back" about 3 years ago. I became interested in the AAC after my grandfather, who was in the 15th AAC during World War II, told me some of his war stories.
I enjoy WWII reenacting and am a member of Fallschirmjager rgt2,101 Abn Baker Co., and the Arrowhead chapter of the MVPA.
