STAND ON THE BEACHHEAD

Feel what it was like to walk the wooden dock alongside a PT Boat, stand in the hangar deck of an aircraft carrier as a torpedo bomber is readied for a strike, and view Japanese battlefield entrenchments.

Tanks, explosions, landing craft and flamethrowers! Living History Reenactments in the Pacific Combat Zone put you on the front line. The Pacific Combat Zone comes alive with the sights and sounds of combat on scheduled weekends throughout the year. U.S. Marine re-enactors move in to capture fortified positions from Japanese defenders, employing landing craft, explosives and flamethrowers… and you are there!

 

 

Our thrilling Living History programs immerse you in the sensations of battle, dramatically showing the equipment, weapons and tactics of the U.S. Army and Marines and the Imperial Japanese Army as they fought on Tarawa, Peleliu, Saipan and Iwo Jima.
