Natick, MA Public Display

This year 3PGD participated in a military vehicle rally and historical display on Lake Cochituate in Natick, MA. Public displays are a great opportunity to interact with the public and give spectators a "first hand" look at history. 3PGD presented some of our motorpool, weapons/equipment, and various smaller vignettes illustrating the lives of the German mechanized infantryman 1943-45. The event was such a hit that MetroWest Daily News featured an article including members of 3. Panzergrenadier Division:
