WWII reenactment at the G.I Museum in Ocean Springs Saturday

Every time you visit the G.I. Museum in Ocean Springs, something new will catch your attention.

That’s because the museum holds more than 17,000 military artifacts with almost 60 mannequins displaying the different uniforms that soldiers have worn into battle.

The museum calls itself the place ‘where military history comes alive’ and they’ll be doing just that with their World War II reenactment tomorrow at 10 a.m.

It’s a free event that also serves as a reminder to never forget what soldiers had to go through when fighting for our freedom. G.I. Museum CEO Doug Mansfield said, “It’s very important to me that people come and see these guys dressed in period uniforms and period equipment. There will be a G.I. kitchen set up. You’ll see how they cooked food and what they had to eat.”

The reenactment will be on museum grounds and there will be plenty of World War II vehicles on display.

The museum will also be open until 5 tomorrow. Normally, they are only open on the first and third Sundays of every month or by appointment.
