Organization of the Week: 9th Division WWII Historical Preservation Society


Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey.

This week, I am featuring the 9th Division World War II Historical Preservation Society. The 9th Division World War II Historical Preservation Society is a World War II re-enactment group which operates in the Mid-Atlantic area of the United States. The Society facilitates several events each year to help support and raise money for the sponsoring venues, such as Fort Mott in Pennsville, NJ, the Air Victory Museum in Lumberton, NJ, and Fort Mifflin in Pennsylvania. This is a group of dedicated historians who enjoy researching and studying all aspects of World War II history. They meet regularly to practice marching and drilling. At some events, they live in the field, in the same pup tents the GI's used in World War II. The Society strives for authenticity and when possible interviews World War II veterans and welcomes them to their events as honored guests.

The 9th Division WWII Historical Preservation Society relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs and special events hosted by the 9th Division WWII Historical Preservation Society or to become a member or volunteer, please visit www.9thdivision.com or e-mail membership@9thdivision.com.
