STEPHENS CITY, VA — A living history event is coming back to Stephens City, Virginia.
Phil Fravel is a local historian and curator of the American Military Heritage Museum. The focus this year will be on the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.

The one-day event is set for June 8th, rain or shine, according to Phil Fravel, who says there will be lots to see:

Reunions of WW II, Korean War, and Vietnam era servicemen and women will occur starting at 10:30am.

Fravel says veterans wearing name tags can be approached to ask about their stories.

The Museum is encouraging local veterans to make plans to attend and spread the word
about the event.

There will be plenty of parking available and there is a drop-off and shaded rest area
for veterans adjacent to the museum. There is no cost to attend the event and
the entire family is invited to attend.

The museum is located 1.5 miles east of Stephens City, Virginia on Fairfax Pike (Rt. 277)
