Collings Foundation WWII Weekend, 2011

Images from the annual Collings Foundation World War II weekend in Stow, MA. The foundation puts on a public display and scripted battles for public viewing every October in the scenic backdrop of Central Massachusetts. The event is held on the Foundation's private grass airfield facility. Soldiers never fought on more well-maintained grass.
