    John Pender, a local visitor, looks down the sights of a 50-caliber machine gun on June 6, 2014, at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in Reading, Pa. U.S. Marines in the Pacific Theater of World War II used weapons like this against the Japanese to provide heavy suppressive fire. Visitors to the Marine’s encampment were also able to see how Navajo code talkers sent messages, and visitors learned about various small arms. 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)
