"Who are we? We are a group of World War Two Reenactors (also called 'Living Historians' by some). This group represents a combat group of German Waffen(Combat)-SS soldiers during the second world war. All members of this nonprofit group have had a common interest in the German side of the war and want to tell the story of the average combat soldier of the German military. Our reenactment unit is based in the mid-west area of the United States and is a chartered group of the World War Two Historical Reenactment Society, Inc. (WWIIHRS,Inc.) which hosts over 1000 reenactors all over the mid-west from all sides of the war.
This group is dedicated to presenting the history of the division which we portray in our hobby of reenacting; the 5.SS Panzerdivision, Wiking. Specifically, we portray a Sturmpionier Gruppe (combat assault engineer) within 2.Kompanie (armored) of the division's Pioniere Bataillon; written: 2/SS.Panzer.Pionier.Batalion. 5 "Wiking". Each member pays for there own reproduction equipment, uniforms, weapons, and traveling expenses!
