Living History Detachment brings life to Marine Corps’ legacy in Reading, Pa.

Eric Junger, a founder of Parris Island’s Living History Detachment, demonstrates an M2-Flamethrower during World War II Weekend on June 8, 2014, in Reading, Pa. Flamethrowers like this were once used throughout the Pacific Theater of the war to destroy Japanese bunkers and were banned from the U.S. military use in 1978. The weekend transported visitors back in time as they were surrounded by thousands of re-enactors in period-style uniforms representing various nations. The weekend also featured period entertainment, weapons demonstrations, mock battles and an air show. (Photo by Cpl. David Bessey)
