Fort Delaware Event July 16th & 17th 2005

We attended this event as guests of the 24th Connecticut Militia Regiment and I am happy to say we had a pretty good showing of our unit for this relaxing event. The weather was very hot but most of the public stuck it out to see each days battle. It is always nice to garrison this Fort on a weekend. Also we got to bring out "Somme Beau" and fire during the battles.
Anytime we get to do that it is a great event!
We like to thank the 24th for their hospitality. It isn't every event we get to have real meals prepared on a schedule!
I hope our members had some time to relax and enjoy the place.

Soldiers present for duty: Brian Plyter, Jim Filipski, Dave Fancher, Patrick McHugh, Rick Valent, Chuck Harris,
Steve Collward / Sgt.
